Notes & Reviews:

"...Mr. Gustafsson, who is only 25 years old, plays the Prokofieff so smoothly and beautifully that he brings the work alive in a whole new way. The playing is completely different from Yo-yo Ma's (SNY 48382)...Very often where Yo-yo Ma growls or hesitates, Jan-Erik Gustafsson smiles and floats on to the next phrase. How sweet it all is!.." -American Record Guide
