Our recording of the Ligeti Concertos with Bit20, Joonas Ahonen and Christian Poltera for BIS are being featured in various "best of 2017" lists of classical recordings.
The Guardian says: "Brönnimann and the ensemble...are vivid advocates of Ligeti’s music. They provide a reminder that even at its most magically elusive it retains a strong rhythmic spine...Poltéra threads his way with great subtlety through the textures that gather around him in the Cello Concerto."
In the Scotland Herald, the disc is in Kate Molleson's list of top 20 classical releases of 2017:
"From Norway came a terrific recording of orchestral works by Ligeti. Baldur Brönnimann conducts the Norwegian group BIT20 (BIS) in the concertos for cello and piano, the Chamber Concerto and the beautiful throng that is Melodien. The performances show this music for what it is: elegant, melancholy, ravishing"
Finally, it appears in Prestoclassical's recordings of the year, and in Finlands biggest daily, Helsingin Sanomat, as part of their "Classical records of the year 2017":
