Per Norgard Early Piano Works on Dacapo Records

Robert Benson
ClassicalCDReview.comDecember 2017

"These piano pieces are fascinating. Don´t expect a cool Nordic atmosphere this music is modern, jagged often dissonant and reminiscent of Prokofiev. Two works are premiere recordings. The program ends with a dynamic Toccata written when Norgard was only 17. !"All of this is superbly played by Swedish pianist Niklas Sivelov, and the rich piano sound in these recordings made in Copenhagen´s Royal Danish Academy of Music are solid sonically."


Lynn Rene Bayley
The Art Music LoungeNovember 2017

"Sivelöv plays with great affection and feeling, imbuing each and every page with just the right sensibility and feeling."

"a delightful album and one that illustrates the early career path of this excellent composer."

Stenhammar Concertos:


 "This is one for rare repertoire junkies...Some beautifully

applied golden-age style from Sivelov"


"Niklas Sivelov negotiates the torrents of octaves and other rhetorical gestures with aplomb."


"Niklas Sivelöv begegnet den Konzerten mit einer schönen Mixtur aus Versonnenheit und spielerischer Leichtigkeit, dem ersten auch mit der nötigen Schwere und der angemessenen Schwermut. Mario Venzago unterstützt ihn dabei und malt mit dem Orchester aus Malmoe trotz Unsauberkeiten der Geigen ein wundervoll weich konturiertes herbstliches, sehnsuchtsvolles Klangbild."

Skrjabin CD:


"Sivelov,  creates a thrilling sense of tumult in the same movement, his headlong tempo and sparse pedalling allowing you to hear all of Scriabin's seething interplay of ideas."



 "I personally rank this as one of the great Scriabin issues of all time, despite my caveats"
(Fanfare Magazine)


 6 stars out of 6.
"Sensous piano playing with a lot of 
rythmical verve"
Sivelov is one of the few 
modern pianists that masters 
this composer among with Volodos 
and Hamelin"
(Bo Holten Klassiskt Magazine, DK)

Excellent review also in the 
Nordische Musik ,
5 out fo 6 stars.
"Es ist eine Wohltat, Skrjabin so ehrlich,
so packend, ja so skandinavisch 
zu h
ören-in diesem Sinne durchaus 
eine Referenzaufnahme.




Englund CD:


"In the First Concerto (1955), Matti Raekallio is crisp and fleet, quicker than Sivelov on Naxos and, if memory serves, Tateno on the premiere 1960s recording for Finnish EMI (nla, and never reissued on CD)..
Yet Sivelov does have the edge interpretatively, especially his handling of the quieter, more lyrical Larghissimo, and he and Panula are unmatched in the more delicate passages in the two outer movements."
