…if Abrahamsens double concerto gets the chance 5-10 times around Europe it will never disappear from the concert halls again
Henrik Friis, Politiken,2/5/2013
A frozen moment of silent beauty. An artwork of crystal. Tremendously redeemed by two heroines on piano and solo violin – you could lose your heart to those girls, if it wasn’t stalled. ”
Søren Schauser , Berlingske Tidende ,2/3/2013 was on top 3 over the most poignant I've heard from a danish composer
Henrik Friis, Politiken,10/11/2011
The Danish composer could set music to a Warsaw autumn. So silent, so frail, so deciduous is his doubble concerto. Especially the third movement was among the most profound moments of beauty ever heard in that hall.
Søren Schauser, Berlingske Tidende,10/11/2011
