Press Quotes

"This thrilling new addition to the violin repertoire... [is] held together tightly by transformations of the simplest material. And, as it grows and expands, the music becomes charged with a Sibelius-like sense of radiating light and excited affirmation... A complex showpiece that scorches its way on to the platform."
The Times

"...a wonderful new work by Lindberg, who shows that it is possible to wed lyricism and virtuosic display with bracingly fresh sounds and musical ideas of substance."
Boston Globe
