 Northern Lights Shining Brilliantly! August 13, 2014 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "A sensationally beautiful recording! Starting with the well known introduction to Grieg's Holberg Suite, the strings of Sweden's Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra give a marvelous concert of short pieces for string orchestra by a number of Scandinavian composers. There is no national favoritism here, as the disk contains works by Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, and Finns... and all of them are excellent. The sound of the SRPO's strings is deep, lush, and impressive, producing some of the finest string orchestra playing I have heard in a long time. In short, this is a recording of the highest quality, and one would have to be totally tone deaf not to love this music. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
