"Rune Alver has done a great work in bringing into light Signe Lund’s music. In my ears her music could not have a better ambassador. He plays with warmth and naturalness. He is honest. He approaches these simple pieces with complexity ... you immediately hear how flexibly and vividly he explores her musical universe." Impromptu – Works by the young Signe Lund
TORE HEGDAHL, Vårt Land
