BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE PICK OF THE MONTH

'Plenty to enjoy here' (Gramophone)

'Unexpected pleasures' (BBC Music Magazine)

‘Most of the pieces will be unfamiliar, but they are all absolutely beautiful, played with great enthusiasm’ (Classic FM Magazine)

'The music is so winning, and so intelligently chosen, that even hearts as hard as that of your average critic are won over ere long … a wonderful disc' (Fanfare, USA)

Smörgasbord
No 1: Romance  [1'10]
No 5: Adagio  [3'20]

Taking its title from the Scandinavian culinary terminology for a variety of delicacies, surely there has never been a more fascinating and evocative collection of short pieces recorded onto one disc? Personally chosen by the performers (with fascinating insights presented in Lidström's accompanying booklet, both historical and intimate), these musical jewels from around the world are firmly and deservedly ensconced in the hearts of these two engaging musicians, resulting in a magical discovery of pure indulgence for the privileged listener. One could not readily expect to find a more satisfying assembly of beautifully written and stunningly played works.
