“… remarkable versatility and craft.” – John Corigliano

“[Beck is] an original voice celebrating music. Without self-consciousness, without paralyzing abstraction, Beck reminds us that music is movement, physically and emotionally. … [His] music is well worth hearing and Innova deserves thanks for putting another relevant voice in front of the public eye.”

Mark Sebastian Jordan, MusicWeb International

“Beck’s concern for communication and naturally evolved dramatic form … is apparent from the start … [of] Never Final, Never Gone. The Toccata from the Four Piano Pieces is … spirited and attractive [and] … immediately imparts a feeling of warmth and familiarity; the remaining piano pieces are either expressive or rhythmically dynamic, and are played with care and enthusiasm by pianist Heather Coltman.”

— David N. Lewis, All Music Guide

“Cynthia Ellis, performing Beck’s Sonata for flute and piano … delivers a masterful performance of a work that just might enter the permanent flute repertoire.”

— Victoria Jicha, Flute Talk
