Gramophone Magazine

December 2007

“…the Sibelius… gets right to the heart of the matter, moving towards its blazing conclusion with a fantastic sense of inevitability - a classic single-breath performance. …in The Inextinguishable… the rushing scales heralding the finale are real edge-of-the-seat, devil-take-the-hindmost stuff, and the finale itself, though on the steady side, feels as though it is working through life-and-death issues, with the timpanists all but bursting the skins in their cannonades.”
