Lyrical. Baadsvik is very technically secure. An impressive performance.
William Kraft’s composition demands a total dedication to equilibrium, and this is done without ever sacrificing the musical expression. Outstanding!
This spectacular recording establishes Baadsvik as one of the best solo tubists in the world
This is a CD that makes you happy. Top score for interpretation, technical quality and repertoire.
