THE CRITICS:

MusicWeb: "Stefan Lindgren is well known among classical music listeners in his native Sweden in several capacities: as chamber musician, accompanist, répétiteur and solo pianist. To this can now be added composer, a fact I became aware of when visiting the Saxå Chamber Music Festival this summer. His compositions are characterized by incisive rhythms and sharp contrasts, sometimes going from one extreme to the other. The continuous flow of the music is further marked by the movements being woven into each other, even though there are marked borders between them. In the first movement of the sonata for cello and piano small rhythmic repeated cells in the piano part are the basic building blocks, above and around which the cello weaves melodic lines. This is energetic and urging music, constantly striving forward. Percussive piano contrasts with the legato playing of the cello in the second movement, but towards the end both instruments are dancing, wilder and wilder until the energy finally ebbs out. The third movement also starts with great rhythmic intensity, gradually transforming into a contemplative section, but after a while it again gathers energy and finishes in a great eruption. This is a long work, almost half an hour, while the other instrumental works are far shorter. Stefan Lindgren’s versatility as a pianist is well displayed on this disc and his co-musicians - all of them belonging to the Swedish elite on their instruments, are audibly committed to their task. For international listeners the lack of English notes may be a drawback but by and large the music speaks for itself and the recording leaves nothing to be desired. "
