“This enjoyable programme of works by Erkki-Sven Tüür… helps to confirm this young(ish) Estonian composer as an important contemporary voice. The performances all seem to be of the highest quality, and two artists deserve special mention: Pedro Carneiro for his almost unbelievable feats of prestidigitation as marimba soloist in Ardor, and Leho Karin for the sustained intensity she brings to the volatile and high contrasted expressive range of Dedication. Fans of Tüür (a growing band, I fancy) need not hesitate.”
“For some years now Erkki-Sven Tüür has been routinely described as the leading Estonian composer. With this disc he not only justifies that label but lays claim to wider recognition... The rewards are great. This is music that is exhilaratingly open to experience.”
