Quotes

ISABEL LEONARD: “Rob Kapilow’s music is perfect for children. Honest, bubbly, and full of color. It had me dancing in the recording studio and will have you tapping your toes and reading along to the book a million times over. ”

ROB KAPILOW: “There is nothing more exciting for a composer than to hear the music you have heard for so long only in your head come to life, and to hear this music come to life in the voices of extraordinary singers like Isabel Leonard and Nathan Gunn is the best Christmas present a composer could possibly receive.”

Review quotes for Rob Kapilow’s Music:

“Kapilow has cornered the market in quality music addressed to children and their families, and within just a couple of years he has become a very hot commodity, one of America’s most performed and sought-after composers.”
 — Boston Globe

“The most popular ‘family music’ since Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.”
— Boston Globe

Every time you turn around, Kapilow is pulling another rabbit out of another hat. And this piece moves, you know — it really moves. There’s so much going on that our intrepid little concert-goers have no time to get bored. It’s a measure of Kapilow’s expertise that the piece plays off major and minor seconds with abandon, yet the music never loses its atmosphere of slam-bam zaniness. Musically, the score stands up marvelously well — it’s clever and bright, there’s never a dull moment … the piece is dynamite.”
— The Star-Ledger

“Written in an engagingly sophisticated, quasi-Stravinskian musical idiom with no hint of pandering.”
— Billboard
