Review of +1

The first review of the new CD arrived from UNT (Uppsala Nya Tidning). Ulf Gustavsson writes:

Traversflöjtduon Markus Tullberg och Andreas Ralsgård blandar egenkomponerat och traditionellt gods på sin nya cd ”+1”. Samt en del udda inslag som en polonäs av Leopold Mozart i förening med en svensk polska. Man njuter av dynamiken, den luftiga lätta rytmiken och tillvaratagandet av instrumentens möjligheter i duons spel som blir till en gemensam klangkropp t ex i ”Vispolska” efter Lisa Bolling.

Eng: The wooden flute duo Markus Tullberg and Andreas Ralsgård mixes original compositions and traditional material on their new CD "+1". They also include some odd stuff as a composition of Leopold Mozart together with a Swedish Polska. I enjoy the dynamics, the light rhythm, and the possibilities of the instruments that make them come together in one, united sound as in "Vispolska" after Lisa Bolling.
