Robert Markow
Fanfare, January 2016

…Wennäkoski shows herself a true master of orchestral color. Textural and coloristic elements play greater roles than melodic or rhythmic ones.

The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Dima Slobodeniouk delivers ideal performances, and Kersten McCall (principal flute in the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra) is a spectacular soloist in Soie. Ondine’s sound is bright and as crystal clear as a Finnish lake. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

The lack of bombast and percussive overkill is refreshing. The performance is spotless, and the sonics are fine. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Soie is a superb vehicle for the virtuoso playing of flautist Kersten McCall.

Everything is superbly performed and recorded… © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Erica Jeal
The Guardian, June 2015

Voile has the billowing, tumbling flute played with fluttering and note-bending effects, echoed and egged on by the rest of the orchestra. Dima Slobodeniouk and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra are persuasive advocates for a composer with ideas and a distinctive way of voicing them. © 2015 The Guardian Read complete review
