Sound Atlas

(Concert review)

"If I didn’t fall head over heels for everything on offer, I did have a soft spot for the magical Sound Atlas… The Swedish composer has an ear for alluring soundscapes. Here, we sank into a disorientating vortex before rising again. The glass harmonica created an otherworldly halo to the orchestral palette; bright, soft-edged and unexpected as the sun’s corona."

Sound Atlas

(Concert review)

"The eerie whine of the glass harmonica permeated Hillborg’s Sound Atlas, its chill tones suggesting scenes as much visual as musical: a snowy landscape, a leaden sky over an equally leaden sea, an abandoned church still resounding with ancient music."

Sound Atlas

(Concert review)

"Music of the far expanses of the universe, haunted by the otherworldly sound of the glass harmonica. If Stanley Kubrick came back to remake 2001 and needed a soundtrack, Hillborg would be his man."

Bach Materia

(Concert review)

Bravoropen rungade när Pekka Kuusisto efter att ha brottats med Anders Hillborgs både sköra och halsbrytande "Bach Materia" höll upp sitt instrument med samma stolta min som en OS-medaljör.
