American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Adam Unsworth has been horn professor at the University of Michigan since 2007 and is a former member of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Detroit Symphony. Catherine Likhuta is composer and pianist in the five-minute 'Snapshots', where the opening minutes are intense, jagged, and staccato. David Ballou (who, like Unsworth, has collaborated with Meridian Arts Ensemble) has Unsworth musing and accomplishing some very busy and difficult tasks in a five-minute, unaccompanied 'Sanskara'. In it, as in all of the works on this fine album, Unsworth handles the most challenging demands with seeming ease.
