    Erkki-Sven Tüür: Clarinet Concerto 2/2
     Finnish Music Quarterly ,
    ""I hadn't come across the playing of Christoffer Sundqvist before but he's plainly a clarinetist of a high order, also delivering sparky accounts of the Nielsen Concerto and Peter Eötvös' darkly humorous, 20-minute concerto, Levitation""

    REVIEW from
    Jukka Linkola´s clarinet concerto teaser
    Recorded during rehearsals in Jakobstad 02.10.2014 
     Musicweb International Classical Reviews ,
    ""The clarinet part is very demanding, but the soloist Christoffer Sundqvist shows truly Paganinian devilry on the clarinet and extracts from his instrument each color and every shade. There isn't a single note that he does not make interesting. The elaborate cadenza is impressive, and the sparkling, explosive finale is totally fascinating.""

    Magnus Lindberg: Away - Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra
     Helsingin Sanomat,
    ""Fagerlund's music is open and clear behaving, but to a positive attitude does not become hackneyed, possessed musicians are needed. Those are amazing clarinet virtuoso, Christoffer Sundqvist, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and conductor Dima Slobodeniouk.""
