Yaroslav Senyshyn gives powerful, emotional performances in the grand tradition of piano playing.

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.

Review:
“…one has only to listen to the thunderous bass at the beginning of the B Flat-Major Prelude, op. 23/2, and the crystalline clarity of the tolling bell-like figuration at the be-ginning of the G Sharp-Minor Prelude, op. 32/12, to appreciate [Yaroslav] Senyshyn’s extraordinary dynamic range and delicate finger-work.” (Fanfare)
