Press Quotes

“…a work that liberally mixes the exquisite colours of the orchestra… and that in its luminescent excess is indeed reminiscent of Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder: as a revolving sphere of sound in which opulence follows upon opulence.
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"Again and again the huge orchestra releases bolts of energy… Lindberg’s sun does not smile mildly upon its worshippers. Instead, it fires up the music and lends it a lasting resplendence.”
Berliner Morgenpost

“…an extravagant and glittering piece on a grand scale, full of bold gestures and big effects… The second movement ends with a solo cello cadenza so lengthy that it is almost a miniature concerto, a mournful lament full of ethereal harmonics. The third movement is the work’s darkest, opening in the lower depths of the bass registers and rising to a howl of anguish before settling into a pensive chorale and slipping unobtrusively into silence.”
Financial Times
