Notes & Reviews:

The year 2014 is a good year to place Norwegian music in the context of the European cultural landscape. With what, or with whom, do the origins and development of Norwegian and Scandinavian music lie? Oslo Kammerakademi's recording of works by Grieg, Svendsen, Hartmann, and Reinecke sheds light on this question.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The performances are highly professional, delivered with symphonic flair and authoritative musicianship. The flutes and oboes play with superb clarity and resonance, the horns play with magnificient power, and the clarinets and bassoons offer wonderful sentiment and enthusiasm. Hartmann's venturesome writing is met with appropriate drive and vigor; and Larsen's arrangements are so expertly and thoughtfully scored that the listener may think that Grieg and Svendsen wrote their works directly for the romantic wind ensemble. Chamber music aficionados should have this album in their library.
