”...superbly recorded, the Dacapo sound securing a well-nigh ideal balance of soloist and ensemble ... Jens Cornelius contributes informative booklet-notes to the concerto disc ... can be cordially recommended to accordian aficionados and novices alike ...pleasurable listening pure and simple.”
Richard Whitehouse - Gramophone magazine - July 2012
"...Mogensen makes his brutal technical part sound so easy in this quasi minimalistic exercise in shifting fluid breathtaking sounds..."
Tiina Kiik - TheWholeNote.com - June 2012
"...That’s perhaps the guiding spirit of this recital: though none of it is ‘light music’ in the general sense of the term, all four pieces start from the premise that life should be enjoyed, and here’s how. Mogensen, Gupta and colleagues catch that tone in their playing, with the result that the CD as a whole can hardly fail to make you feel better. I enjoyed every note of it and strongly suggest that you do yourself the same favour."
Martin Anderson - International Record Review - July 2012
"...a virtuoso performance by the brilliant young Danish accordionist, Bjarke Mogensen." ****
Elissa Poole - The Globe and Mail (Canada) - 30 April 2012
"...The most beautiful, dramatic and sheerly irresistible disc of new music to cross my desk in months"
Joshua Kosman - San Francisco Chronicle - May 2012
"...If you thought the best way to kill a dinner party is to play modern Nordic concertos on the accordion, think again. Bjarke Morgensen’s set by Schmidt, Koppel, Lohse and Norgard, neither lugubrious nor autistic, fizz like an aural set of Northern Lights. Weird and scintillating stuff." ****
Norman Lebrecht - La Scena Musicale - 30 April 2012
"DaCapo’s disk of accordion concertos is fascinating... If you’re looking for something different, try this."
