Notes & Reviews:

Having recently concluded his Halvorsen series, Neeme Jaarvi continues his Nordic project with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. This is Volume 2 in the survey of orchestral works by Norwegian composer Johan Svendsen. Norwegian cellist Truls Mork is described by The Daily Telegraph as 'a player of angelic grace and purity of tone'.

The Guardian, September 2012
Mørk makes the most of the lyrical solo opportunities in the concerto, which telescopes traditional three-movement form into a single sonata movement wrapped around a central intermezzo, while Järvi and the Bergen Philharmonic give the symphony a real sense of momentum, without ever attempting to disguise what it owes to Schumann and Mendelssohn.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
[The Cello Concerto] is a fascinating and addictive work that deserves more airings...But Jarvi and his Norwegians are on scintillating form throughout and the Cello Concerto and dark readings of the Symphony are to be treasured.
