Gramophone Magazine

June 2012

“Concerto Copenhagen's performances ooze abundantly with charm, wisdom and warmth...Mortensen's fluent playing of the tricky quick organ solos in the concluding Allegro are articulated flawlessly. Such classy moments make this one of the most endearing artistic interpretations of Op. 3 in recent years.”
