Composer

Notes & Reviews:

When composing for choir, Sven David Sandström (1942–) does not hold back in terms of expression or technical demands. This contributes toward a powerfully emotional tonal language, to which the ‘Nordic sound’ of the Swedish Radio Choir is perfectly suited. Composer and choir have worked together for years and their close relationship is evident in the excellent performances heard here. Channel’s usual superb multichannel recording provides the perfect ambience to allow the music to speak.

"The title of this superb disc is the only banal thing about it: the music, performances and recording are all phenomenally good...The singing of the Swedish Radio Choir under its Peter Dijkstra will leave you slack-jawed in amazement: control of pitch, dynamic, rhythm, blend, you name it, is perfect, and it's all reproduced with crystalline clarity." -International Record Review
