Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Norwegian composer Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen is one of the most original creative voices writing for brassband. The many delights and depths in this fine production will be appreciated by repeated listening.”

-- Paul Hindmarsch, Brassbandworld

"Manger Musikklag is one of the country's best brass bands and at times one can feel almost ecstatic listening to the remarkable level of musicianship. The title piece "Dynamis" is the highlight of this recording with its drama and power in brass form."

-- Marit Elise Lyngstad, Hamar Arbeiderblad

"Harmonious, skillful playing. Both the composer and the band are in top form on the principal piece, "Dynamis." It is
Read more singable, dramatic, and features soloists, which lends it an almost oratorium-like quality. Especially grand is the sound of the brass instruments together with marimba. The playing of Manger Musikklag is exceptionally well-balanced."

-- Erik Steinskog, Bergens Tidene
