Fanfare, November 2015

Dimitri Ashkenazy…and cellist Ross Harbaugh prove to be equally sympathetic interpreters of Kam’s music. …Whether performing the rather frenetic and driven 1985 Sonata for Cello and Piano, or the meditative and spacious Lokahi for clarinet, cello, and piano, the group is quite obviously inhabiting the music, as each dynamic and gesture become important to the overall listening experience, all helped by a very natural recording and production. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Dennis Kam is a fine composer, and his music has something to offer both the head and the heart. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Fanfare, November 2015

Ashkenazy gives a most eloquent account of a piece that is actually really beautiful. But of all the pieces here it is the 1985 Cello Sonata which impresses the most. After an arresting opening, there is a terrific exchange between pizzicato cello and piano. …the finale has great vitality as well as variety. …fully worthy of seeking out and digesting. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review
