Review in the Vinyl Anachronist

«This one is entirely about the music. That's a strange way to begin a music review, I know, but with a 2L release there's always so much more going on than the performances. There's the extraordinary care taken during the recording process to ensure that the sound quality is state-of-the-art, there's the cutting edge technologies used to achieve that goal and finally there's a theme to explore, usually a cerebral one that's aimed squarely at true lovers of classical music. These themes can be simple, or they can be so esoteric that only a handful of music lovers would discover the intent on their own without the help of the unusually detailed liner notes."

Review in the Strad of album YR

«On the evidence of this recording, 23-year-old Ragnhild Hemsing is destined for great things. Already a leading performer in her Norwegian homeland (she made her debut aged 13 playing the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Bergen Philharmonic), last year she made quite an impression playing Halvorsen’s Fossegrimen Suite for Chandos.» - The Strad / JULIAN HAYLOCK
