Holmboe: Concertos and Chamber Works (II)
"That this is one of the finest viola concertos ever penned I have not the slightest doubt, and it is thrown off with dazzling virtuosity by Tomter and the Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra under Russian-born, Finnish-resident Dima Slobodeniouk... Ensemble MidtVest's follow-up to their very well-received first chamber music disc is equally impressive." EDITOR'S CHOICE - CRITIC'S CHOICE

Poul Ruders: Koncerter
4/5 Stars

"Percussion virtuoso Matthias Reumert acts as a frame for a troubled landscape of aggressive, atonal adventures in all sections of the orchestra with an apocalyptic climax. Performances of these often crowded musical collages will never be easy, but there’s no hint of struggle and many flashes of comprehension on this disc."
