Review By Jay Harvey,The Indianapolis Star,April 2011

Let’s consider the rise of new music by women composers, who benefit from the general rise in the status of women in American society, as conflicted and gradual as that has been. One of the most interesting (and a new discovery for me) is Stacy Garrop, a Chicago-based composer whose academic credentials and honors include a doctorate from Indiana University.

From Chicago’s Cedille Records comes “In Eleanor’s Words: Music of Stacy Garrop,” a gathering of three of Garrop’s works, with the title work being a fascinating setting of excerpts from Eleanor Roosevelt’s “My Day” newspaper columns, widely published in American newspapers between 1935 and 1962.


Review By John von Rhein,Chicago Tribune,March 2011

For my taste, Garrop’s settings for mezzo-soprano (Buffy Baggott) and piano (Kuang-Hao Huang) of newspaper columns by Eleanor Roosevelt pale by comparison with her powerful Third String Quartet (“Gaia”). The score, which takes its inspiration and primal energies from the Greek earth-goddess, provides the Biava Quartet with an ideal outlet for its youthful vibrancy.
