In the meantime, more reviews of the release have been published. 

The Danish newspaper Politiken writes: "With the music of Christian Winther Christensen we find ourselves in a borderland between sounds that are there in their own right - simply because they sound good - and timbres put together as musical, pulsating rhythmical passages telling stories with raw power."

The German Neue Musikzeitung calls Winther Christensen's 'Piano Concerto a highlight of this year's ECLAT Festival and adds that the recording by SCENATET underscores the individual profile of the Danish composer.

Yet another German magazine FONO FORUM finishes a five-star review of the record like this: "Thankfully you accept a recognizable motive before the ear must go on a journey again. And really: Here you can learn to listen - if not actually learn to hear - all over again!"
