Reviews for Carol Comune's Compositions

 

Faeries Dust from "Suite from Sleeping Beauty"

 "It's rich textures and colors with the pedal were an impressionistic dream. Simply gorgeous.”

                                                   Charlene S. Step-pianist and teacher
                                      President, Music Educators Association of New Jersey

“The Sleeping Beauty" is charming and imaginative, artistically presented,
with varied
challenges for the hand and ear.  Beautiful illustrations further the student’s visual 
                understanding and sound possibilities.  These pieces can individually stand on their 
                                own or be performed as a set by one pianist or several.” 

 “Variations- bold and very moving indeed, these variations on a familiar hymn give wings to exploration while evoking a contemporary reverence and sense of awe; they speak to all of us in today’s world, while hearkening memories from history with hope in the future.  A beautiful effort and gift for all of us, as musicians and citizens of the world.”

“Sleeping Beauty is an immediately appealing score, beautifully written with descriptive elements that excite the imagination.  It begs to be choreographed.”

“Variations for Piano “ O, God Help Our Ages Past ” is a fine display of Carol Comune’s versatility.  The complex content of the variations indicates an advanced level of musical skill, craftsmanship and expression.”

Dianne Goolkasian Rahbee-pianist and composer

The FJH Contemporary Keyboard Editions

  

 

“Carol Comune an American composer, pianist and teacher, has recently written a duet suite Gealyn and Me for her six-year-old daughter with an unusual twist-her daughter has composed the easier student parts…thoroughly contemporary and fresh-sounding…progressive teachers will welcome these very unique ensemble pieces for study and recital use.”

“The Croft Hymn O, God Help Our Ages Past that Ms. Comune has chosen for Variations is exceptional.  Its harmonic progression is very memorable…the composer has taken advantage of these fine qualities…very pianistic and felicitous in its progression of ideas from one variation to another.”

“Perhaps fairy tales are passe’ or only for the very young.  Thus, it is particularly gratifying to know that Carol Comune has recently written a six movement piano suite based on the enchanting Sleeping Beauty tale and doubly gratifying in that the work is so imaginative and colorful.”

Donald Waxman- composer and pianist

“Sleeping Beauty and Variations…they are delightful and wonderfully varied in emotion and intensity.”

David Hagan-concert pianist and teacher

New England Conservatory Music Prep Department

 

 

“…superb program… You truly are a very gifted performer and composer. Your music is so enjoyable to listen to and explores contemporary rhythms and harmonies in a very accessible way. I am sure that all who hear and play your pieces will find fulfillment in listening, studying and playing them.”
