If there's room in your life for contemplation of the sublime, Valen has prepared the soundtrack.
The Wire (UK)
A major figure in 20th century music.
Glenn Gould (US)
The deep seriousness and lyrical sensitivity of the music stand the test of time better than most Norwegian works.
Verdens Gang (NO)
Made available in the most exemplary way.
Dagens Næringsliv (NO)
Valen always surprises new generations.
One of the most beautiful and noble works that have appeared in recent years in any country ("The Churchyard by the Sea").
Hans Jørgen Hurum (NO)
"Pastorale" is like a shot into the future. Extraordinary.
David Monrad Johansen (NO)
