Notes & Reviews:

The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra's new album Nordic Spring offers a poetic journey through the finest works composed by Nordic composers. Griegs Holberg Suite takes the lead followed by the works of Nielsen, Svendsen, Sibelius, Bræin and Atterberg. A combination of internationally celebrated works and hidden gems, these works have rarely been performed or recorded.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Here is beauty incarnate! Just listen to the utterly smooth and perfectly integrated viola solo in Edward Braein's four-minute Suite for viola and orchestra (with just a touch of woodwinds for color). The perfectly tuned soloists and orchestra in Kurt Atterberg's Suite for violin, viola, and strings make the Prelude and Pantomine drip the kind of slow-building, melancholy intensity found in many of Grieg's works; and the concluding minor-key waltz that is energetic. Whatever the dates of each composer and composition, all the works here are pure 19th- Century romantic. The warm, perfectly balanced "set it and forget it".
