Reviews

'Halgeir Schiager is a player of dazzling technique and the recording is wonderfully spacious' (Gramophone)

'This is astonishing music, superbly played and recorded' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Halgeir Schiager draws forth an enormous range of tone colours, and tackles this difficult music with a virtuosity that is both effortless and spectacular. A wonderful disc' (International Record Review)

'Halgeir Schiager’s performances are just as thrilling as the music: his virtuosity is up to the extortionate demands Eben makes of his technique, and he delivers readings of extraordinary sweep and power. An exceptional disc' (Fanfare, USA)

'Halgeir Schiager’s playing is immaculate throughout – imaginatively registered and subtly articulated – and it is hard to imagine a better advocate for these pieces (Organists' Review)

'Halgeir Schiager's performances do this never less than vividly-conceived music proud' (The Irish Times)

'This new series by Hyperion is long overdue, and given the quality of this first volume, should be enormously successful. Programme notes by the composer complete this admirable release by Hyperion, and I for one greatly look forward to hearing more. Excellent' (The Organ)
