“[One of the] best new recordings from North America[.]

Andrew Druckenbrod, Gramophone

“Jeremy Beck’s music is firmly rooted in free tonality, and is — judging by the works recorded here — warmly melodic and colourful with unexpected harmonic twists. … [His] music is yet another example of what can be successfully achieved within the boundaries of tradition, for it is never reactionary and holds enough harmonic and rhythmical surprises to sustain the interest.”

Hubert Culot, MusicWeb International

pause & feel & hark is very good; the purely instrumental selections represent very lyrical and lovely music that makes one want to hear more. All of Beck’s music is lovingly played here, in some cases by the musicians for whom the works were written.”

David N. Lewis, All Music Guide
