nosag AIVCD 003 -

This the third CD in the "Souvenirs" series contains recordings by the Swedish Radio of Concerts in 1974, a re-sounding result of the Viola in West project. One of the project´s objectives is to document musicians working in West Sweden.

The repertory on this CD is mainly classical, with the great 38 min Mozart Divertimento as main course. But we find also music by Gothenburg born jazz pianist Bengt Hallberg who composed several works for classical ensembles, among them the here recorded String Trio.

Dominy Clements in MusicWeb International: "(---) We can be grateful to ‘Altfiol’ that students, historians and lovers of fine chamber music can now add these live recordings to their archives. "

Borås Tidning: "(---) a rarely heard string trio with its first performance by the fine Johnsen Trio the aforementioned year; and two pieces where the star violinist Manoug Parikian meets Swedish elite in Dvorák’s Terzetto and Mozart's last, advanced Divertimento (---) The Johnsen Trio gives a new and exiting view of Hallberg. "

Hifi&Musik: "(---) Many brilliant musicians participate, mostly Swedish, but also the legendary Armenian Manoug Parikian (1920-1987). The recordings were made live and there is some noise from the audience as well as applauses – but the music is just wonderful "
