BBC Music Magazine

February 2006


“…the engineering… is exemplary in every way, conveying the warm acoustics of Bergen's Grieg Hall with thrilling presence. …playing so enchantingly musical that occasionally one might have thought Barbirolli was at the helm.”

Gramophone Magazine

March 2006

“Bergen musicians have lived with these scores since their creation and all the performances here, unfussily recorded in the rich, woody acoustic of the city's Grieg Halle in June 2004, have a relaxed, idiomatic naturalness in their virtuosity.”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“This is simply the most beautiful recording of Grieg's string music in the catalogue and one of the most beautiful and realistic recordings of strings we have yet heard...The wonderfully vital account of the Holberg Suite is unsurpassed...The surround sound is in a class of its own.”
