Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
Amy Dickson is the star of this disc... thrilling performance and vivid recording.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
Amy Dickson's latest release is a terrific musical tribute to her home country, comprising premiere recordings of three attractive, contrasting works... what binds all three is a narrative if not strictly programmatic quality; this in turn allowed Dickson to exploit her abilities as an instrumentalist-storyteller... [the Sydney Symphony Orchestra] play with all the energy and precision for which they have become world-renowned.

The Guardian, 21st January 2016
Dickson's new release is an intriguing and entirely serious collection of recent works by Australian composers, works she did much to create...it is Brett Dean's 2007 flute concerto The Siduri Dances, here arranged for saxophone, which offers the most wide-ranging demonstration of Dickson's mastery with its note-bending, buzzing effects and hectic rhythms.
