Notes and Editorial Reviews

Described as a pianist of “enormous power” by the Washington Post, Canadian Yaroslav Senyshyn is an exponent of the grand tradition of piano playing. In addition to his concert activities, he is a professor of aesthetic and moral philosophy at Simon Fraser University and publishes extensively on these topics. For this recording, Senyshyn couples well-known works by Rachmaninoff with two pieces by Atsushi Yoshinaka, who is a professor at Gakuin University and spent a year as a visiting professor at Simon Fraser University, where he and Senyshyn collaborated. His two works were inspired by a trip taken to the Strait of Georgia in British Columbia and are reminiscent of Rachmaninoff’s homesickness and longing for his ancestral home. - Read more Albany Records Read less
