Though her phrasing is thoroughly contemporary and her treatments of the traditional carols completely integrated into a new age motif, the attraction of In the Heart of Winter is, to me, more in the strong set of original holiday songs composed by Ms. Spielberg herself. The CD opens…with In The Heart Of Winter, a contemplatively sentimental tune unique in offering a glimpse of a vocal performance from the artist. Inspired by the fall of Maple leaves in autumn and played with extravagant dexterity, A Change Of Season is imbued with drama and pathos. Solstice Celebration is a light, airy proclamation of the return of the sun. And First Night, an ode to Christmas Eve, is a warm and uplifting tribute. The annual holiday crescendo still months away, Robin Spielberg’s In the Heart of Winter provides an elegant beginning.—Richard Banks for christmasreviews.com

Review

Anyone would be hard-pressed to figure out how to make prettier, more fitting songs that celebrate Christmas.—Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Robin has captured the feeling of the entire winter season from the last leaf falling in October on into the new year with its snow melting and warmth. Contains wonderful new etheral songs featuring piano, strings, flute and percussion plus 11 holiday songs from around the world. The arrangements are a musical delight. If you only add one Winter/Christmas album to your collection, this should be the one.—The Gathering Place Magazine & Resource Guide
