“Sean Hickey’s two big three-movement concertos give their soloists a huge range of extended passages, riffs and cadenzas with which to stand up and out against often explosively colourful orchestral support (with frequent solo opportunities for the woodwinds and brass) … Dmitry Kouzov… dramatically showcases his virtuosic skills. … The Clarinet Concerto… features brilliant young clarinettist Alexander Fiterstein in music … inteded by Hickey as ‘a restless, yet haunting recollection of life in the US heartland’. The stunning audiophile recording, produced by Alexei Barashkin, was made at St Petersburg’s Melodiya Studios.” — Laurence Vittes, Gramophone
