Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Organist Anders Eidsten Dahl (b 1976) was appointed in 2001 as cantor of Bragernes Church in Drammen, where this recording was made. His principal organ teachers were Terje Winge, Kare Nordstoga, and Hans Fagius. His performances here are elegant and coherent. The greatest praise belongs to his performance of Commotio. I have long felt this to be an important. He regarded Commotio as one of his best works in that respect. Eidsten Dahl's reading the sprawling piece begins to make real sense, and that is something I consider a notable achievement. It alone is worth the price of admission.

Anders Eidsten Dahl's selection of organ works on this recording demonstrates how music can both frame the life work of a composer and bring it to a close, as alpha and omega.
