"Vanhoorne emerges as a magnificent soloist, thrilling in his florid, gymnastic runs and in the mini-cadenza prior to the movement’s conclusion" "it’s powerfully translated by Vanhoorne and reinforces Clarke’s reputation as a composer who is led by the image" "After a brief, rapid declamation, Vanhoorne conveys Clarke’s flight-of-the-bumblebee-edge-of-the-seat solo writing with exemplary clarity against an ever-shifting collage of brass band texture."

"serving as a dauntingly stamina-sapping vehicle for the talents of Harmen Vanhoorne, the soloist responds in stunning fashion, displaying a range of dynamics and tonal variation that is hair rising in its sheer commitment, breathtaking virtuosity and drama. The work sits as a surrealist inspired tour de force that plays magnificent and deeply personally to Vanhoorne’s outstanding talents"
