Press Quotes  
"...the ethereal solo that opens the slow movement sounded like two distant voices mingling in a pungent blend of chanting and sighing... The effect is not spooky, but spellbinding. The music unfolds in fits and starts, with the clarinet breaking loose like some avant-garde jazz improviser... The last movement, true to its title, Improvisation on a Groove, is fractured, restless and brash. Mr Kriikku gave a vivid, colourful and technically stunning account of this elusive concerto."
New York Times
