Notes & Reviews:

"...Christina Astrand is a superbly assured soloist...The Danish performance is more extrovert, with the soloist and the exuberant swooping harmonics on violin well to the fore...It's coupled with Norgard's...'The Secret Melody' and...'Helle Nacht'...which really does succeed in sounding radiant and dark at once...the performers project [all] with equal conviction." ***** -Hewett, BBC
