‘If we needed proof that exciting new talent is in the pipeline, there was the marvelous American debut of Juho Pohjonen at [Carnegie's] Weill Recital Hall. Mr. Pohjonen offered a formidable mixed program, topped by thrilling accounts of two fiendishly difficult works by a fellow Finn, Esa-Pekka Salonen."
