Review of "Seasons Suite" by Kathy Parsons (mainlypiano.com):
"The “Seasons Suite” begins with “Colors Change,” obviously about the transition of summer into fall, but also about the concept of change as we grow. Reflective and subdued, the interplay between Stevens’ piano and Iimori’s oboe is effortless and flowing. “Autumn Wind” picks up the pace a bit, but continues the easy flow, bringing images of leaves swirling. “Signs of Winter” is a bit darker and more mysterious. Iimori is a big fan of Paul McCandless, and that musician’s influence is very strongly heard in these first three pieces - a very good thing! In “Clouds,” Iimori switches from oboe to English horn. This duet with the piano is a dramatic musical depiction of the gathering clouds and anticipation of a coming thunder storm. I really like it a lot! “Snow” is tranquility set to music. “Sparrow’s Song” brings us to the beginnings of spring - the freshness in the air, and the joyful songs of birds in the yard. “July” reflects the laziness of a hot summer day. “Season’s Reprise” brings together the themes from the various seasons, creating a lovely closing to the Suite."
