Reviews

'Water and liquid forms are a recurring metaphor in Hillborg's music... In Dreaming River, two woodwinds are posted at the edge of the stage, honking on Chinese oboes like dying sea birds prior to a gentle breeze of strings...  It grows to a euphoric finale.‘

Svenska Dagbladet (Sofia Nyblom), 23 March 2007

 

'A ceaselessly intriguing stream of clear vision... The fascination with the sensual and festive, and the superb treatment of the orchestra – with new sounds woven together with an almost visual quality and richness of association, place the Hillborg in Strauss's vicinity.'

Dagens Nyheter (Thomas Anderberg), 8 November 1999
