This is music of tremendous imagination. Knehans scores with a masterly hand, his sound paintbrush unerringly hitting the mark. The orchestral writing is magnificent (and beautifully realized here). All credit to the virtuosity of the Brno Philharmonic and the expert ear of their conductor, Mikel Toms, for delivering such a razor-sharp performance. A fascinating disc.

I could see a wide, open space in my mind as the plaintive strains of oboe and strings played 'Drift'! The music has so many brilliant arrangements and movements all played so neatly to add life into it. 'Cascade-Drift echo' is one such track. I absolutely love the strong vibe on 'Torrent' and the neat orchestration too. 'Mist, memory, shadow' is in a different league altogether! Excellent!
