Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 12th November 2013
Beautiful tone, impeccable technique and innate musicality. Of great importance is that this repertoire is thrilling, highly accessible to anyone who accepts the music of, say, Poulenc, Ibert and others of that generation...The orchestral playing is excellent, the recording up to the usual BIS class and Ole Edvard Antonsen is a magnetic soloist. Give this disc a chance.

Classic FM Magazine
Wallin captures a freshness and energy in his performance. Brushing aside those associations of madness that have coloured Schumann's music, Wallin and his equally dedicated orchestra and conductor have achieved new levels of understanding - listen to the captivating second movement of the Concerto in D minor to appreciate his poetic interpretation.

The Telegraph
Wallin has just the right sound for the music, sweetly expressive rather than brilliant...What makes these performances really special is the way they reveal the wayward passions under the music's cosy, gentle surface. Wallin's playing has a rhythmic flexibility which is exactly right for Schumann's diffident impulsiveness...It's hard to imagine more sympathetic and insightful performances of these wonderful pieces.
