"Rush is a relatively short, fast and intensive work. The starting point for the composition has been different blocks of rythmic material which during the piece collide and interact with each other, creating situations of both correlation and repellation. Sometimes the instruments rush up to virtuoso fioriture, sometimes to rythmic, dance-like dialogue with each other.
Pekka Kuusistos brilliant and free-spirited musicianship as well as the intriguing soundworld of the cimbalom has in this work acted as a great source of inspiration."
