LIRA GILLAR! ”Isabella Lundgren har grävt i låtskatten av jazzhistoriens mest genomtröskade örhängen och återställt dem till det de en gång var. Sånger människor förälskat sig till och gråtit hjärtats brustna tårar över, sånger som låtit människor förlora sig i minnen. Utbrytartekniken hos Lundgren och hennes medmusiker är av högsta klass.” (Magnus Östnäs, Lira)

Högt betyg 5 (av 6) i Svenska Dagbladet! ”Det är inte som förnyare av den vokala jazztraditionen Isabella Lundgren har sin styrka utan i närvaron, allvaret och den emotionella laddning hon ger varje ton och stavelse. Hennes sätt att sjunga går att härröra från Billie Holiday och Ella Fitzgerald men det vi hör är genuint personligt och utan nostalgi.” (Dan Backman, SvD)

Högt betyg 4 (av 5) i Dagens Nyheter!
"Isabella Lundgren lyckas överföra den narrativa kraften hos den klassiska jazzen till sin egen röst och person." (Johannes Cornell, DN)

Image St. John Passion, BWV 245 (1749 Version) (2CD)
Johann Sebastian Bach’s St John Passion is, along with the St Matthew Passion, without doubt one of the most important works he ever composed. It established a new tradition for Good Friday vespers in Leipzig, and with sublime skill Bach managed to retain a spirit of church worship while creating an almost operatic narrative that movingly depicts Christ’s trial, death, and ultimate apotheosis. Bach’s numerous revisions always demand a certain amount of scholarly decision-making, and this recording of the St John Passion uses the final 1749 version that not only draws on and reinforces the best of Bach’s original concept, but incorporates the additional movements of the 1725 version.

Image Solo Concertos
"Our Roman set out as a great musician and returned greater still." On his return from England, "the Swedish virtuoso" inaugurated a series of concerts in Stockholm, the first of their kind in Sweden. He himself was presumably the original soloist in some of the solo concertos performed in this recording.

Image Symphony No. 3
Wilhelm Peterson-Berger is a captivating and controversial Swedish composer and critic whose musical idiom is distinct personal. He was often inspired by folk music, and here in the third symphony, "Same-Ätnam", he pays homage to Lapland by incorporating several Lappish yoiks. From the same period are "Romance for Violin and Orchestra", with its austere as well as gently lyrical character, and the song cycle "Gullebarn´s Lullabies", where Verner von Heidenstam´s heavily symbolic poetry has been interpreted with grandiose simplicity and naive humour.

Image French duets
A bewitching programme of music often associated with childhood, including favourites by Fauré, Ravel and Debussy; works which amply reward the care lavished on them by Paul Lewis and Steven Osborne in these exquisite accounts

Toppbetyg i Musikrevyn, fem radioapparater!
”Exceptionella musiker, oklanderligt framfört på så många sätt. Man faller för hur de musicerar tillsammans, i en fantastisk ljudbild som man skulle vilja bo i hela dagen.” (Musikrevyn)


During the 1930s, Bliss, Britten, and Berkeley all contributed major works to the repertoire for string orchestra, following in the footsteps of Elgar and Vaughan Williams. They are joined on this album by Frank Bridge whose Lament was composed during the First World War. This is the fourth recording by John Wilson with his award-winning Sinfonia of London. Bliss composed Music for Strings after he had completed the film score for Korda’s Things to Come, driven by his desire to compose a piece of ‘pure music’, expressing his own ideas rather than those of others. Commissioned in May 1937 by Boyd Neel for the Salzburg Festival that summer, Britten’s Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge was composed at great speed, and helped to establish the young composer’s international reputation. Dedicated to his teacher, Frank Bridge, the theme is taken from the second of Bridge’s Three Idylls for string quartet. Lennox Berkeley composed his Serenade for Strings at Snape Maltings, where he was living with Britten in 1938 / 39. By the time of its completion the nation was at war and the music seems to reflect the composer’s anxious mood as the world faced an uncertain future.

Image Cello Sonatas
The cello sonata had its greatest flowering in the Romantic era. In Sweden this can be exemplified by Ludvig Norman´s adeptly romantic sonata and Jacob Adolf Hägg´s mature early work that abounds with fresh spontaneity, as well as by the younger Edvin Kallstenius´s unconventional sonata.
