Classical CD Reviews
Well known writer, journalist and editor Gavin Dixon writes about the CD Revelations:
In common with Tippett, Klaverdal is a composer who constantly wrestles with tradition, yet mixes the new and the old with such fluency that the whole process seems almost intuitive (…) An interesting album with plenty of musical ideas you won’t find anywhere else.

”But for me… who is not so well versed in contemporary classical music, it feels new and exiting. For if done right it can take the music to unimaginable heights.”

regarding The Sacred Family and 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.
