Reviews: ‘When Lidstrom turns on the heat,the excitement comes from the musicality of interpretation as from his impressive dexterity and astonishing dynamic range.’
‘The ingenuity of the writing was quite dazzling; so was the playing – the expertise of Mo’s near-instantaneous transitions from one style to another was often startling and always impressive.’
