Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Drums has a tightness of organisation that is genuinely composerly. Driven forward by a timpani motif that torches a swirling, tearing-it-up percussion cadenza midway - a moment echoed later with a tumbling flute and timpani duo - Johnson's characteristic rhythmic stride ignites the whole work. It feels satisfyingly unified; idiom-perfect performances.
