“These five pieces are incredibly varied and present unique challenges, yet all are carried off triumphantly. As for the conductor Atvars Lakstīgala, he keeps a tight rein on these players and gives these fascinating new concerti the best possible advocacy. There is palpable belief and excitement throughout both discs. Šmīdbergs’ concerto is especially fine. But the Ešenvalds is unquestionably a masterpiece.”
