Reviews

‘Hillborg's score is full of originality, ranging from gentle lyricism to bluesy swing and angular modernity.’

www.musicalcritisism.com (Hugo Shirley), 13 August 2008

 

‘Hillborg is one of the most interesting pluralists. Hillborg has written a clarinet part for Martin Fröst which is as virtuosic as it is playful and inventive.’

Helsinki Hufvudstadsbladet, 17 February 2006

 

‘Virtuosic, direct music of humour and great ingenuity. Stravinsky references mix with bop-like phrases (on the bassoon!).’

SvD (Tony Lundman), 17 December  2001

 

‘Exquisitely beautiful... musically first-class’

Expressen (Lars Sjöberg), 16 December 2001

 

‘A kind of commedia dell'arte play gradually crystallises, with the various characters portrayed by the same person (the soloist). It is classy and humorous at the same time.’

Göteborgsposten (Magnus Haglund), 12 June 2008

 

‘Hillborg is on track to become a real national composer.’
