|This second CD in the "Souvenirs" series is as the others a re-sounding result of the Viola in West project. One of the project´s objectives is to trace contacts and possible influences between violists and composers i West Sweden during the years 1850-1950.|
The repertory on this combined CD+DVD set is from the latter part of the period object for the research. We find music by Elfrida Andrée, Knut Håkanson, Birger Anrep-Nording, Lille Bror Söderlundh and the mostly in Paris working Gösta Nystroem.
Excellent musicians are playing on this CD as on the other Souvenirs:
EROK, string quartet
Dominy Clements in MusicWeb International: "(---) these works have all recently been recorded in pleasant church acoustics, and are sensitively and expressively performed by some of Sweden’s top string players."
Stig Jacobsson in Hifi & Musik: "(---) Here is now Elfrida Andrée’s Andante and Knut Håkanson’s excellent first string quartet (---) a brilliant record musically. "
P-G Bergfors, in Göteborgs-Posten : "(---) the record’s best element: Erok’s brilliant and intense performance of Gösta Nystroem’s string quartet. Thanks to this, it stands out as one of Nystroem’s principal pieces of all categories. Good booklet and a DVD with glimpses from the rehearsals and some of the pieces ´visualised´ enriches this just recently published CD. "
