Double Triple Koppel
"The Concerto for Mezzo Saxophone, Cello, and Harp has some very stunning moments. The cello tends to recede into the background, but the harp makes the orchestral fabric very interesting. The quiet part of the first movement’s coda is utterly captivating; the sax mostly takes the jazzy lead and the orchestra adds deftly scored sighs, but it’s that harp, that harp! Indescribable! I could live without the final flourishes, but this movement on its own would make a fine showpiece."

Double Triple Koppel
"This is music of remarkable creativity and power, a welcome respite from all the slick, historically informed, and bloodless performances/recordings of the older classics that seem to be produced by the truckload nowadays. Highly recommended."

ANDERS KOPPEL: Double Triple Koppel
"The way Koppel combines instruments is truly unusual and extremely well handled. Even after repeated listening I am surprised to realize which instruments are creating the sounds and how well he blurs the lines between even such disparate voices as the recorder and the saxophone. Well worth investigating for yourself."

Double Triple Koppel
"…fantastic combination of Michala Petri’s delicate recorder and Benjamin Koppel’s fruit and smoke jazz-coloured saxophone. This addition to a growing discography is superbly recorded and presented, and is another of those accessible and rewarding programmes of new music which should encourage more of us to cast our nets ever wider."
