WELCOME TO NIKLAS SIVELÖV's WEBSITE


"He has the powerful ability to add  his personal ‘presence’, with intensity and drama and, maybe above all else, a philosophical outlook that lets him constantly consider the elements, the complexity and the organic structures of music."

"Niklas Sivelöv, Swedish pianist and professor conquers the music with his whole body and personality.
He rocks gently back and forth, gestures and quietly sings with the music. Sivelöv's style is always personal. There is no doubt that it is a person of flesh and blood with will power and energy sitting by the piano."

TEASER 1

The keyboard of Sthens Church fine Steinway piano was this afternoon in the hands of one of the greatest pianists in Denmark - Niklas Sivelöv, professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. His programme was awe-inspiring; 2 of Beethoven's last sonatas opus 109 and 111, and Bach's Partitas 2 and 3.

 

Stenhammar CD:

"This is one for rare repertoire junkies...Some beautifully

applied golden-age style from Sivelöv"
(BBC)

 

"Niklas Sivelov negotiates the torrents of octaves and other rhetorical gestures with aplomb."
(Gramophone)

 

Skrjabin CD:

 

"Sivelöv,  creates a thrilling sense of tumult in the same movement, his headlong tempo and sparse pedalling allowing you to hear all of Scriabin's seething interplay of ideas."

(Gramophone)

 

Englund CD:

 

"In the First Concerto (1955), Matti Raekallio is crisp and fleet, quicker than Sivelöv on Naxos and, if memory serves, Tateno on the première 1960s recording for Finnish EMI (nla, and never reissued on CD)..
Yet Sivelöv does have the edge interpretatively, especially his handling of the quieter, more lyrical Larghissimo, and he and Panula are unmatched in the more delicate passages in the two outer movements."

(Gramophone)

"I have finally read through your first Symphony and am very impressed! The music is clear, thematically effective, temperamental, very well balanced and with a great rhythmic drive!
And I look forward to experiencing the "silent scream" live!
"

Tomas Löndahl CEO / Secretary General at the Royal Swedish Academy of Music
