The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "Fans of Friedlander's earlier work may at first be put off by all the violins, but those willing to offer a second listen will be taken by the sheer generosity of the vision and the expansive artfulness on display here compositionally. Wonderful".[3]
