The music has an exhilaration hardy, primeval feel…obviously influenced by folk music.  The delicate tones on Inevitabilini  for solo recorder are deftly realised by Anna Petrini, while Calm Like A Bomb is a frenzied ten minutes of in-your-face electronica. /Philip Clark

Dagens Nyheter, Sweden

Ärr

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

San José Mercury News, USA

calm like a bomb

Nordin’s “calm like a bomb” wrapped violinist Graeme Jennings, a scary hyper-virtuoso, in an electronic tape-generated blanket straight out of a David Lynch dream; bizarre and entertaining.
