"formidable technique and confidence"

Aho Sieidi / Helsinki Philharmonic, cond. Osmo Vänskä

"The opening of the work was declamatory and ritualistic, with virtuosic solo turns on the darabuka and djembe.. but Aho saved some of the best for the second half: the dialogue between woodwinds and bowed vibraphone, and the final flourish on tom-toms and snare were both effective and inspired. Soloist Colin Currie probably made it through this entire virtuosic showpiece without breaking a sweat, such was his formidable technique and confidence."
