American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Ars Nostra's release is notable for its pieces with two pianos. Robert Paterson's Deep Blue Ocean begins with a raging darkness that is tempered by cascading lines in the upper registers. All three movements have a deep entrenched sense of hope that refuses to be beaten by the octatonics, clusters, or dense rhythms. JB Floyd's `Tribute for Two Pianos' is darker, with leaner textures and motives that meander to nowhere in particular. The sense of direction, of forward momentum, is blocked in I and II, but clear in the short III. Chan Hae Lee's Frozen Land is the longest of the group. In I the clusters are dense and consistent, dark downbeats flow heavily. II melts away the tension with a tender progression and lithe figures in the upper register.
