Notes & Reviews:

Already well known to opera audiences worldwide, Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling is also a dedicated and acclaimed recitalist, as noted by reactions in the Sunday Times and Gramophone, among other publications, to her two previous BIS releases with pianist Paul Rivinius that feature songs by Richard Strauss and Franz Schubert. This new, third BIS disc of songs by Edvard Grieg, Jean Sibelius and Wilhelm Stenhammar takes its title from Stenhammar's I skogen (In the forest), with many of the selected songs either played out in or depicting natural settings, in a manner familiar to Nordic composers.

Sunday Times, 2nd August 2015
His Six German Songs Op 50 and Grieg's Op 48 set - two of which were Schwarzkopf favourites - are the "meat" here, but the rare Swedish songs, gorgeously sung, are welcome.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
Throughout these songs, and in the following mood portraits of Tilling's compatriot Stenhammar, there is fine use of dynamics by a singer and pianist who have clearly worked closely on the texts. As a Lieder singer Tilling thinks through her material - she's compelling story-teller as much as decorative word-painter. She also manages en route a remarkably clean and unhackneyed 'En svane'.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
Camilla Tilling uses her light lyric soprano to trace the echoes and glints of folksong in the melodic shape and harmonic underpinning of many of these songs of the North. Minimal vibrato and long lines of pure and focused cantabile bring high-latitude light to Sibelius's setting of his beloved poet Runeberg, and give voice to both his far from mute swans in Norden, and those of Grieg and Ibsen in En svane.
