Notes & Reviews:

Neeme Järvi returns to conduct the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in Volume 3 of Chandos' series of orchestral works by the Norwegian composer Johan Halvorsen. Of the second volume, Classic FM said: "[Halvorsen's] music is distinctive, expertly written, endlessly tuneful and thoroughly engaging... every phrase pulsates with charm and energy, making even the simplest of gestures feel like musical gold."

Gramophone Magazine
The Bergen Philharmonic under Jarvi respond with commitment throughout, relishing the challenges of the music as much as the opportunity to showcase it...Top-notch Chandos sound completes a splendid, jam-packed disc.

International Record Review
Järvi, predictably, inspires splendidly alive and vibrant playing from the Bergen Philharmonic, and the Chandos team (Brian Pidgeon and Ralph Couzens) produce a first-class balance and lifelike sound to delight us. The booklet is highly informative and well produced.

Fanfare Magazine
Black Swans is a quasi-Impressionist miniature of darkly oppressive character while Wedding of Ravens in the Grove of the Crows is a theme-and-variations set for strings, based on a hauntingly beautiful Norwegian folk melody (Grieg arranged it also as one of his op. 17 piano pieces). The wan, nostalgic melody alone is memorable, but what Halvorsen does with it makes the Wedding a miniature masterpiece.
