Sketches of Seasons is a new take on the familiar four seasons theme by pianist Atzko Kohashi and percussionist Eddy Koopman. Improvisations driven from the moment and emotion. ......The musical realization of the seasons is magically portrayed. As if being in a beautiful dream. The palette ranges from the renewing, burgeoning of spring, the glorious of summer, the melancholy of autumn to the cozy embracing of winter.      ー Native DSD

Atzko Kohashi's touch is delicate, deliberate, carefully calibrated to the emotional content she wishes to convey. Eddy Koopman brings a similar delicacy and intention with his use of bells, brushed gongs and cymbals, and drums of all types. I can't begin to identify all of the instruments he uses to bring out the most subtle accents that emphasize, complement and contrast with Kohashi's piano—it is all a delightful interplay of sounds and timbre, superbly judged and timed. Kohashi's magical touch keeps all moving ahead, weaving the melody and enticing one to follow along.  - Rushton Paul
