Taking its title from the Scandinavian culinary terminology for a variety of delicacies, surely there has never been a more fascinating and evocative collection of short pieces recorded onto one disc? Personally chosen by the performers (with fascinating insights presented in Lidström's accompanying booklet, both historical and intimate), these musical jewels from around the world are firmly and deservedly ensconced in the hearts of these two engaging musicians, resulting in a magical discovery of pure indulgence for the privileged listener. One could not readily expect to find a more satisfying assembly of beautifully written and stunningly played works.
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE PICK OF THE MONTH 'The music is so winning, and so intelligently chosen, that even hearts as hard as that of your average critic are won over ere long ... a wonderful disc' (Fanfare, USA) 'Plenty to enjoy here' (Gramophone) 'Unexpected pleasures' (BBC Music Magazine) Most of the pieces will be unfamiliar, but they are all absolutely beautiful, played with great enthusiasm --Classic FM Magazine

I have to confess I don't generally buy many CDs with a large mix of composers like this but I was looking for a recording of Moeran's Prelude and found the whole album a treasure trove of great music ... some it even playable but you would have to be very good to match the playing here.
My favourite discovery was Percy Grainger's arrangement of the Sussex Mummer's Carol which makes me smile everytime I hear it.
Played often and highly recommended.

There are some unknown gems in here (the Hägg or Stenhammar), juxtaposited with more familiar works (said Fauré, for instance - which is in fact one of the pieces that works least well i.e. where the lack of subtlety makes it a little four-square), but the transcriptions are consistently less appealing. Sound is a little dry, but perfectly fine. So, while this is a varied programme and a generally well-played one, I'll give it a cautious recommendation
