COMMENT BY SWEDISH FLUTE PLAYER
Mr. Jacob are you a fluteplayer too? Anyhow, it seems for me as it has been composed by a composer who knows the instrument very well.

REVIEW
... ingratiating music which can be enjoyed at first hearing and which yet has countless small subleties of craftsmanship to repay frequent hearings. - The Times
