"The violinist Johan Dalene further impresses with performances of two great concertos that sit among the very finest."
The magazine launches its April issue today featuring Johan Dalene in a delightful interview and singles out the Nielsen/Sibelius album for a prestigious “Editor’s Choice".
"There is character here at every turn..... And yet, somehow, Dalene always sounds like himself – in his distinctive, delicious and very present savoury tone (never revelled in for its own sake) and in his ability to fix a point on a horizon and play, unhurriedly and with a sense of purity, towards that point...... For my money, there’s no finer coupling of these highly contrasting yet much-associated concertos on record."
Gramophone, Andrew Mellor
