His confidence is well-founded, Hsieh indulges in an almost imperceptible ‘swing’ which, combined with some superbly dramatised crescendos, result in a forwards momentum that is more evoked than forcefully realised.

For me that is what Taiwanese/American musician Ja Hsieh has achieved here with a frankly stunning performance.

Ja Hsieh is an amazing musician who plays percussion with passion, dexterity and precision. I love his playing and his performances are always spellbinding. Ja Hsieh’s rendition of my timpani concerto Raise the Roof was fabulous and I will never forget it!
