Renowned pianist Robin Spielberg has marked a milestone in her illustrious career with the release of her 24th album, “By Way of The Wind.” Breaking away from her previous solo piano and piano/ensemble compositions, this latest offering presents a collection of Spielberg’s original works fully orchestrated for a complete symphony and piano and string orchestra. The album represents a departure from her established repertoire and showcases her versatility in a fully orchestrated context.
A remarkable aspect of “By Way of The Wind” lies in its unique recording process, as Spielberg collaborated with the Budapest Scoring Orchestra remotely over Zoom. Notably recognized for their work on the score of the acclaimed film “Parasite” and various other projects, the Budapest Scoring Orchestra contributed to the distinctive sound and texture of Spielberg’s latest release.
The album not only demonstrates Spielberg’s artistic evolution but also reflects the adaptability of musicians and orchestras to virtual collaborations. “By Way of The Wind” stands as a testament to Spielberg’s enduring creativity and ability to push the boundaries of her musical expression, captivating audiences with a symphonic journey that adds a new dimension to her extensive discography.
