Topnotch musicians entertained with klezmer and Bach”
“With a mixture of joy and melancholia, with fast fluctuations in both melodies and
harmonies, the music was carried forward in abrupt changes but with steady rhythm,
where accelerating passages pulled down cheers ”

With elegance in sadness”
“Directly I was striked by the chamber-music mutual sensitivity among the three musicians.
/.../ festivity and happiness so you wanted to stomp to the beat
and the most venturous fireworks of music from the violin.
/.../ at circus level it is of course to play so in tune and apparently so effortlessly. ”

Klezmer music with soul and feeling”
“musicians on the highest level. But it is coupled with soulfulness and a feeling for the source that brings the concept klezmer to a deeper and almost spiritual dimension /.../ Musically more dynamic and dramatic is the chamber-music-like meeting between the violin, cello and accordion.
Very sensitive ensemble playing is in the making.”

“I can't imagine a better performance”
San Francisco Chronicle

“His even and warm violin tone and technical command are astonishing”
Dagens Nyheter

”Performed with such exquisite poignancy that I could hear
suppressed sighs from the ever-so polite audience. /.../
delivered with such lengthy exalted lyricism that the audience was transported
to an Otherworld where time stood still while ears traversed empyrean air./.../
incredibly intricate, improvised, virtuoso ornamentation that was remarkable./.../
This was the most astonishing violin concert I have ever attended.”
