"...Telluric Dances by the Greek-Canadian composer Christos Hatzis (who was in attendance at the concert) is a three-movement oboe concerto built around various Eastern Mediterranean traditional dance forms, an effective piece of programming alongside Scheherazade.

The sound of the oboe, of course, is so redolent of traditional Middle Eastern reed instruments, and the work is all about heady atmosphere and effect. A battery of percussion (including a rainstick and a solo role for hand-drum) is matched by colourful orchestral gestures, and a solo line that essential binds this rhythmic and colour painting together..."
