REVIEWS

[Ärr] releases into a bursting rhythmic scream that has seldom been heard in classical music. The response from the audience was univocal. A great triumph for Jesper Nordin in his home town.
/Martin Nyström, DN

…forceful, rhythmic and explosive with clear roots in rock music. A future classic?
/Ulf Stenberg, Tidningen Kulturen
