Jack Sullivan
American Record Guide, March 2013

The early Plastika Scener from 1921 and the Suite from 1924 are full of youthful charm and lyricism. The Sonotin from 1949 is a shapely piece of neoclassicism. Here the young pianist Anna Christensson displays her considerable skill at probing counterpoint.

More impressive yet is her range of touch and color in the Theme and Variations and the poetic Improvisations from 1939; the Lento and Moderato from the latter are exquisitely beautiful, especially under her liquid touch; the tiny Allegro moderato springs to life with deft understatement; the last two pieces, which form a kind of double finale, sound noble and majestic, as does the third variation in the Theme and Variation set from 1941.

Christensson…sounds like a first-class artist, and she is well served by the warm recording. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
