Reviews for Karen Griebling:

Music of Alan Hovhaness for Horn, Voice and Strings Centaur 2872, Karen Griebling violist and conductor “Karen Griebling gives a strong, heartfelt performance of ‘Chahagir’” American Record Guide, May/June 2008

“Karen Griebling plays with a steady engagement with the music’s exotic spirituality.” Musicweb-International.com “’Chahagir’ is given a committed performance by Karen Griebling, for whom the work’s considerable double-stopping presents no problem.” Hovhaness.com

Music for the Soul, Victoria Hall, Singapore August 17, 2000 Sonata for Viola and Piano by John Sharpley; performed by Karen Griebling, viola, John Sharpley, piano “Griebling played with superb intonation and character.” The Flying Inkpot, Singapore

Wildfire! Music by Karen Griebling Vienna Modern Masters 2052 “…finely-polished and provocative compositions.” “…steeped in the traditions of the Western canon with the dash of the master craftsman.” “…her compositional expertise and artistic finesse are born from an astute critical discernment which engages the intellect as it touches the human spirit.” Journal of the International Alliance of Women Composers

“…the result of this request was a well-crafted piece...five movements that contribute much interest for both the performers and listeners. This suite offers the same appeal as does the Sonatina for Horn and Piano, Op. 75a by Bertold Hummel.” The Horn Call, February 2008

“[String Quartet #6 Dancing Ground of the Sun]…is charming and intriguing.” Arkansas Democrat Gazette, 1994

“A real plus for this production [The House of Bernarda Alba] was the incidental music by Karen Griebling.” San Antonio Examiner, 1986
