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. "
