Press Quotes

Deutsch

"Magnus Lindberg's Clarinet Concerto has enjoyed phenomenal success since its 2002 premiere, and rightly so. A marvellous vehicle for the amazing virtuosity of clarinettist Kari Kriikku...indubitably contemporary in language yet sensuously easy (tuneful, even) on the ear."
BBC Music Magazine



"A perfect concerto, perfectly performed ...if there's any justice it will soon be as oft-performed as Mozart's concerto."
The Times 

Recommended Recording

Kari Kriikku / Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra / Sakari Oramo
Ondine ODE 1038-2
