1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable, 12 Dec 2012
Appeared to work with my Samsung phone but when trying to write files using a computer and card adapter it kept corrupting. Re-formatted once, it corrupted again, and then would no longer format. Judging by the packaging, I'm sure it's genuine but read tests indicated a maximum of 16 MB/s, so way short of the claimed 30 MB/s. Have returned item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Northern star, 6 Dec 2012
Getting to know Stenhammar's music, largely through this CD set, is proving an extremely enjoyable experience. I bought this set following my recent discovery of the first class 2nd piano concerto, which contains one of the most beautiful slow movement/sections of any concerto for this instrument.

And who could resist the wistful, warming nostalgia of Midwinter. The modal second symphony is so full of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars First rate concertos!, 18 Oct 2012
These concertos are full of first class material - great tunes and motifs. Fed up with hearing hackneyed Rachmaninoff 2 & 3, Grieg, Tchaikovsky concertos? These are in no way inferior in terms of interest and inventiveness. I checked the BBC Proms archive and couldn't find any instances of performances of these works which is truly shameful. I am new to the amazing second concerto - its short slow movement section contains one of the most beautiful, wistful, tunes to be found in any concerto. I agree with M.J Perry's review here on Amazon and can't recommend these works highly enough...
