Remote Galaxy nominated for a Grammy Award
- It is always a great pleasure to work with the producer Morten Lindberg and his team in 2L, and the process of making Remote Galaxy has been very enriching, indeed. With this nomination, Remote Galaxy belongs at the very top of world-class, innovative, high-end sound quality releases. The recording sessions of Remote Galaxy were a thoroughly enjoyable experience, with a Philharmonia Orchestra in top shape and the legendary Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting the works. I need to mention the outstanding performances of the soloists, too: Emily Beynon (flute), Ralph Rousseau (viola da gamba) and Mark van de Wiel (clarinet). All the contributors on Remote Galaxy have made an excellent effort to make the sheet music shine. I am very grateful. Congrats to producer Morten Lindberg and all participants!

Gramophone magazine, April 2014
This is a stunningly unusual flute concerto full of poetry, drama and intense feelings. As with the other works on this fine disc, it is brilliantly played by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy. Emily Beynon is a superb soloist.
The Classical Reviewer, May2014
- Remote Galaxy is one of the finest recordings I have ever heard! Unlike a lot of so-called demonstration material, the music matches the quality of the recording. It's an incredible artistic and technical achievement, and a disc I will return to many times in the months and years to come.
