Jon Mostad

“Thank you for introducing me to the music of Jon Mostad"

      Matthew Berry, Director of Commotio, Oxford, UK, to the publisher of Two Psalms, 2006.



“The music is full of sound, light, dramatic digressions, and a rock solid handling of the complex machinery of a huge symphony orchestra”

      Hugo Lauritz Jensen, review of ACD 4978 with orchestral works by Jon Mostad, Dagens Næringsliv 21.09.1996.
