Press review

Cannes Classical Awards 2004: Disc of the Year + Orchestral 20th Century Award

(...) the formidable interpretative skills of conductor John Storgårds, who secures exemplary results from the Tampere Philharmonic. The sound is splendidly ample and detailed to match. (...) This enterprising release deserves every success.
Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, April 2003, Editor's Choice

If you enjoy Kancheli, or Rautavaara, or what you might call the "new tonal school" of modern composers, then you're going to love this. It's also marvelously played and conducted (...), and the sonics are drop-dead gorgeous. An event not to be missed!
David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com, March 2003, Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10
