  • KLASSISK MUSIKK – Sandra Lied Haga REVIEW (NO)

    Hovedinntrykket ved denne innspillingen er av dyp intimitet med musikken. Uansett hvor velkjent den er, synes musikerne – orkesteret så vel som solisten – å behandle den med samme blanding av fintfølelse og spenning som du merker når noen legger en nyfødt baby i armene dine.
