Gramophone Magazine

“Engeset’s new account is a delight from start to finish, revealing Tveitt’s delicate yet robust invention without a hint of the twee, though with a suggestion of Khachaturian in the finale…. Naxos’s recording, engineered by Tim Handley, is excellent. Great fun, warmly recommended.”

International Record Review

“Continuing its extremely valuable Tveitt series with the RSNO, Naxos offers us Suites Nos. 1 and 4...A most enjoyable disc.”
