​In the July issue of the well-known British music magazine Gramophone publishes a review of the Norrköping SO recording of Allan Pettersson’s symphonies nos 5 and 7. The praise is overwhelming:

“The Norrköping players are once again on superb form, responding to Lindberg’s advocacy just as keenly; but then this music is in their blood.”

“Simply wonderful”

The author also writes that conductor Christian Lindberg’s understanding of Pettersson’s work is deeper than any previous interpreter’s, and goes on to commend the orchestral balance in both symphonies.

“Simply wonderful”, is the final comment.
