Barbara Kolb has created a contemporary form of Impressionism: instead of mathematical structures, it is poetic and visual images which inspire her pieces, as in her orchestral work Grisaille (named for the painting technique) - and indeed she has even composed a number of works in which performers "confront their own images on tape". The result is distinctively turbulent yet sensual, with atonal harmony and intense climaxes.

"[Kolb] hears timbres as precisely as she manipulates intricate motivic structures." — Chicago Tribune

Works by Barbara Kolb include:
Solitaire (1971) for piano and pre-recorded tape
