American Record Guide, May/June 2014
There is applause on this recording. Mr Senyshyn gives the work a perceptive accompaniment with an excellent range of loud and soft playing. The second piece is quiet and meditative for about two minutes, then also turns into a wild. The performances of this new music by Canadian composers are very accomplished overall, and the piano is picked up with a very full, close sound.
