Ira Byelick
American Record Guide, May 2012

Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen’s…Dance and Detours…Its juxtaposition of violin passages with low woodwinds and strings is especially interesting and quite witty. The timbral variety in the violin is astounding, and Helge Slaatto handles the difficult score with moxie and expert ability. In der Abendstille…is a three-movement work for flute, oboe, bassoon, and harpsichord. The composer’s ability with counterpoint is in evidence; and the last movement, with its slow, conversational writing, is especially beautiful. Of Princes and Dreams is without any doubt worth hearing…the second and third of its five movements are especially beautiful. This music is less abstract and less modernist—and in turn it is more readily accessible—but not lacking in substance. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
