Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Swedish pianist Niklas Sivelv (b. 1968, Stockholm) joins the ranks and continues the great tradition of the pianist-composer with this first-ever recording dedicated to his own compositions. His 24 Preludes, written 2010-14, takes its place in the tradition established by Chopin, Scriabin and Shostakovich. This recording presents some of Mr. Sivelv's early work and some of his most recent, completed earlier in 2015, with music colored by a range of influences, from Bach to jazz. The composer supplies the booklet essay himself, explaining what he was trying to achieve in each piece.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Sivelov's plays his music with flair and authority, and Toccata's sonics are clear and clean. The difference between listening to a "good" recording of a piano and one that sounds like a piano is right there in the room with you, is akin to the difference between looking at a painting of the sea and looking at the sea itself.

Listeners like me who are always curious about new or undiscovered prelude cycles, or better, prelude-and-fugue cycles, should investigate Norwegian composer Frank Nordensten on Hemera 2941. The level of contrapuntal skill and invention in his set is flat-out astonishing; Nordensten comes up with the most recalcitrant fugue subjects imaginable and entirely convincing polyphonic edifices out of them, one after another. Johann Sebastian would approve.
