Reviews

'Imaginative, appealing, well-performed music … This impressively recorded disc is strongly recommended' (Gramophone)

'Schiager plays the work with real swagger, just what it demands. The sound and flavour of the magnificent instrument of the Eleonora Kyrkan in Stockholm are beautifully captured in the recording' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Halgeir Schiager has virtuosity to burn and he tackles these daunting scores with obvious relish – this is startlingly good playing. A winner on every point’ (International Record Review)

'An organ sound of fine linear clarity and stunning visceral impact. Performances are exemplary' (Fanfare, USA)

'Some of the most effective organ music written in the past half-century' (The Irish Times)

'This second release in the series continues as excellently as the first began. Such performances as these will not fail to win over new followers to the world of contemporary organ music. Followers of Eben’s music need look no further than this stunning disc. Highly recommended' (The Organ)
