When you are at a dead end with a student, ‘Hand over Hand’ has funny, exciting, sensitive pieces to make him/her enthusiastic again.

Robert Nasveld presents a wonderful example of the bitter melancholy that is the essence of the blues with his beautiful Frozen Blues.

Peter Dickinson in Gramophone

Robert Nasveld’s set of the Complete Works for One Piano by George Crumb is well worth having.

Robert Nasveld’s music presented surprising power of expression.

Dominy Clements, Musicweb Review

My reference for comparison with Crumb’s Makrokosmos IV is that of Robert Nasveld on the Attacca label, 9371 and 9372. My main reason for selecting this version is that it has always come out on top, all other recordings which I have come across long having gone by the wayside.

Robert Nasveld writes exceptionally beautiful music, although its beauty is not pastoral, but contradictory, unstable, disturbing, capable of stimulating all spiritual forces of the listener.

Nasveld has always been a wayward composer, showing little interest in trends.

Pianist and composer Robert Nasveld is an outsider; as radio producer and indefatigable  advocate of American composer George Crumb he is a man of significance.
