"PEP sets our expectations of New Music against sounds often associated with traditional music and in doing that provides something that is as fresh as it is unique."

Jason Hall, Vancouver Observer, Mar. 2015

“The duo’s musically nuanced playing, combined with repertoire freshly commissioned in 2013 and 2014 - attractively captured in this recording - has caught the attention of critical ears. the album earned a nomination for Classical Recording of the Year at the 2015 western Canadian Music Awards. Given the rewards on display here and PEP’s ever-growing repertoire and reputation, in what musical directions will Volume 3 take us?”
