The Recorder Magazine (UK) "As always, Petri´s playing is exemplary"

Andrew Mayes, The Recorder Magazine (UK)
Petri´s unfailing commitment to performing and commissioning new music continues with the recent series of recorder concertos from different countries. All the works here are written for her and the Concertos by Roberto Sierra and Anthony Newman are world premiere recordings. The Newman is really a chamber work – scored for recorder, harpsichord and strings and feels very retrospective. The Steven Stucky was by far the most interesting and successful work for me. Compositionally more complex, the playing and sound quality in this recording with the Danish national Symphony Orchestra stand out. Also includes Concertos by Sean Hickey for recorder and Wind band. As always, Petri´s playing is exemplary.
