From the first time I heard Incantation on CBC Radio 2 I knew I needed this album. When I finally got to listen to the complete album I was not let down, every piece met my expectations! I don't think I'll put down this album for a long while.

Also as an aspiring bassoonist, this album can definitely motivate me to practice. :D
