GRIEBLING-HAIGH

 

F E A T U R E D   R E V I E W S

Gramophone August 2013

“Griebling-Haigh’s penchant for exotic atmosphere is on display in two pieces of rich and haunting personality. The Sinfonia Concertante is scored for the fresh amalgam of two oboes, bassoon, and string quintet, which engage in sinuous and impassioned conversations until whimsy takes over in the third movement, an evocation of rascally rabbits. In Alegrías, Griebling-Haigh blends Sephardic sounds of several regions in a stew of flavorful ingredients. With yet another novel instrumentation  the music swirls and stomps in off-beat flamenco rhythms to disarming effect.”

 

The Double Reed, Vol. 40, Nº. 4

The Story of Babar  is given a fresh and convincing treatment in Griebling-Haigh’s effective translation and lovely characterful melodies and moods. The writing is consistently engaging, clever, and ideal for each character or dramatic situation.  This musical setting never overstays its welcome."

 

The Double Reed, Vol. 29, No. 1

Griebling-Haigh's compositional style and ability to write music that really paints pictures is very noteworthy."

 

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Vistas desde el Balcón (Views from the Balcony) leans toward Russian elements suggesting Prokofiev’s brooding lyricism and Shostakovich’s mystery and anger. Whatever the source, it’s a stunning explosion of ideas.”

 

Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Griebling-Haigh’s Collioure travels from brooding utterances to episodes of dramatic anguish. The piece was saturated with haunting inflections.”

 

American Record Guide

Griebling-Haigh manages to create beautiful textures and melodic lines that sound fresh and personal.  The melodies are lovely.”

 

American Record Guide

“The variety of moods, textures, and instrumental lineups is admirable.  Tedium and triviality are banished, and the musicianship is exemplary.”
