“Eisenga plays nine beautiful self-written solo piano works. The level remains unusually high for 45 minutes and fascinates and moves over the entire length.” ★★★★☆

Pieter Wijnstekers, Heaven

“The record holds us captive as if we were gazing on something awesome like a world, but viewed from outside its gravitational pull. So that we can see its every peak and valley and how each becomes the next. Eisenga has crafted a record as spacious as the cosmos.”

James Fleming, All About Jazz

“As haunting as ever as it advances through its plaintive melodies and lilting rhythms. Lower-register figures provide a firm foundation for gently trilling themes to assert themselves, the material subtly growing in urgency and tension and the merging of right and left hands producing as mesmerizing a dedication as could be imagined.”

Ron Schepper, Textura

“Douwe Eisenga has – together with the team of TRPTK – delivered wonderful work.”

John van de Veer, HVT Magazine

“Now there is a beautifully designed album with nine recent piano pieces, including For Mattia, in that characteristic, compelling Eisenga style that leaves virtually no one untouched.”

Rolf Bosboom, PZC

“A fantastic combination of grandeur and intimacy, warmth and openness – if you can, buy this album now.”

Wojciech Pacula, High Fidelity

“It is a moody and rhythmic composition with repeated motifs that are reminiscent of Keith Jarrett.”

Ruud Jonker, Music Emotion

“Eclectic, emotional music from someone who certainly knows how to fascinate. […] Excellent recording quality.”

Jan de Kruijff, Musicalifeiten
