Reviews of the CD ”Revelations”

Some reviews on the new CD Revelations:

Klaverdal writes music that is infectious with spontaneity… the music is light and playful… a music that is bursting with colourful dance effects.
Matti Edén, Sydsvenskan may 2010, Sydsvenskan

… listened to the Revelations-CD on C-Y contemporary with five chamber music pieces by Stefan Klaverdal (*1975): very powerful string quartet!
Walter Ekelin, June 2010

In my ears: Stefan Klaverdal och Tippet Quartet. Very exiting art music that moves in and out of different genres. With power!
Bengt Eriksson, July 2010

On the CD ”Revelations”, the music is in between laptop (electronica) and classical music, the electronics is not overwhelming, but serves as a very personal expression from the composer and the present.
Bengt Eriksson, august 2010, Ystad Allehanda and Trelleborgs Allehanda. Full review can also be read at erikssons kultursidor
