Sheku Kanneh-Mason is one of today's most exciting young cellists . . . and his arrangement of "No Woman No Cry" is pure loveliness -- inventive, sweet and virtuosic . . . Sheku, we crown you the king of reggae-classical crossover.

. . . a formidable indication of his ambitions . . . [he negotiates Shostakovich's Cello Concerto no. 1 deftly,] moving smoothly from the contorted, capering Allegretto into the involved Moderato, with its wild sweeps between epic and manic, intimate and overwrought.

. . . [a] supremely assured debut . . .
