Notes & Reviews:

Neeme Jaarvi brings us Vol. 3 in his survey of orchestral works by Norwegian composer Johan Svendsen, here taking us from 1860s, when Svendsen was in his twenties and had just graduated from the Leipzig Conservatory, to his sttled life in the 1870s. These orchestral works display a shift from youthful exploration to his fully mature voice.

MusicWeb International, 11th June 2013
For lighter but colourful fare, volume 1 has most to offer, and by way of bonus includes Svendsen's best-known work, the lilting violin Romanze op.26.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2013
JSrvi and his Bergen players sound most happy together, playing with a fluency suggestive of more joint live performances than they could possibly have had. The engineering supports them at every turn.
