“Glennie is at her most charismatic in Magma, an intoxicating physical score; the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi not only supports her blow for blow but plays the entire programme with a palpable sense of passionate conviction. Virgin's recording is of demonstration standard, the climaxes in Magma frequently awe-inspiring.”
“Though written for Evelyn Glennie, who takes the solo percussion part with superb aplomb, this really is a symphony rather than a flashy, beefed-up concerto. It stays just on that side of the divide everywhere except in the brief cadenza at approximately the half-way mark. The other three works on this disc feel similarly substantial and born of inner necessity...Tüür is currently well represented on CD, but this new disc is probably the most rewarding devoted to his music, no doubt partly because performances and recordings are first-class. If the prospect of challenging, granite- hewn musical invention has any appeal, then this is a must.”
