Monk: Impermanence

Editorial Reviews

Philadelphia Inquirer - David Patrick Stearns
1/2 More than ever, though, Monk's music is somewhat unmoored from the minimalist camp with stronger allegiances to contrapuntal music from medieval conductus to Bach.
National Public Radio - Laura Pellegrinelli
From its somber beginning ("Last Song"), anchored by two simple chords, Impermanence explores the flux of life. Like Joan Didion's Year of Magical Thinking, Monk's composition captures the pangs of loss that come with the passage of time and the passing of beloved companions.
