Dominante in media

"The full and rich tone, spectrum of shades and colours, excellent programme, well-shaped and detailed interpretations - purity, brightness and beauty... What else could one expect from a choir concert?"
- Aamulehti (2011)
"They [Sibelius's chorales] are wonderfully sung by the Dominante Choir under Seppo Murto."
- musicweb-international.com (2010)
"The performances of Seppo Murto's Dominante in the [Sibelius's] cantatas among others are radiant."
- Rondo (2010)
"Dominante does a fine job with the premiere recordings [of Sibelius's choral pieces]."
- Helsingin Sanomat (2010)
"Dominante represents one of the finest choirs. Seppo Murto's choir has a youthful essence and tone but lacks the impression of a youth choir. The clang is bright, pronunciation clear and dynamics have a wide range."
- Helsingin Sanomat (2010)
"Seppo Murto had coached his choir into brilliant shape. The vocals were clean and smooth, in fast patterns flexibly accurate and well-defined."
- Helsingin Sanomat (2009)
"All were lovingly interpreted by Vänskä and performed with due delicacy and precision by the orchestra and the first-rate Finnish choir Dominante (artistic director Seppo Murto)."
- Evening Standard (2007)
"On Wednesday, those Sibelius champions supreme, the Lahti Symphony Orchestra and their music director, Osmo Vänskä, came to London with five top rank soloists and the excellent Dominante choir, for an evening of song and theatre music."
- The Times (2007)
