"This is a solid presentation of very good contemporary music written in a conservative manner... excellent performances we have come to expect from this label."

Recording of the Month
"...Real 21st century music: standing on the shoulders of those who came before yet reaching higher than ever."
Oleg Ledeniov - www.musicweb-international.com - 16 January 2012
"...Slobodeniouk obtains thrilling playing from his Gothenburgers, who have to leap through some pretty virtuosic hoops, and no one will be suprised to read that BIS has captured it all in first-rate sound... snap this one up."
Martin Anderson - International Record Review - October 2011
"...Dedicated performances and fine recording quality give the music every chance to speak."
David Fanning - Gramophone magazine - September 2011
Performance ***** Recording *****
"... Fagerlund’s music has an authentci openess that speaks for itself, and if his melodies don’t resemble ’tunes’ in any familiar sense, their lyricism is warmly appealing. Full marks to clarinettist Christoper Sundqvist, the Gothenburg Symphony and Dima Slobodeniouk for putting all this music across with such power, intelligence and refinement, and to BIS for demonstration-quality recordings."
Stephen Johnson - BBC Music Magazine - September 2011
