Notes & Reviews:

These works of Sally Beamish, composed 2003-12, highlight the inspiration she has found in her adopted homeland Scotland and its landscape and history, while also reflecting her interest in jazz and Scottish traditional music. Often collaboration closely with 'her' performers, the present disc's the three concertante works are all played by the eminent soloists for whom they were written: James Crabb, Branford Marsalis and Håkan Hardenberger. Conductor Martyn Brabbins and the RSNO, an ensemble that has performed her works on several occasions, join the former two soloists.

The Observer, 27th September 2015
Atmospheric, keenly felt and expertly played by all.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
Sally Beamish has the Gaelic art of keening down to a fine art. Scotland is her adopted home, and its history and culture course through music that so often finds its starting point in something extra-musical - yet transcends the creative straightjacket of a 'programme'... [the RSNO] rises attentively to Martyn Brabbins's illuminating and incisive direction.
