creativity and tradition

If you are willing to accept Bach’s keyboard works on a modern concert grand rather than a harpsichord—I prefer the piano—Sivelöv’s readings are ideal. Fanfare Magazine

Classical and Improvisatory music

The catalogue is groving fast and AMC:s latest release was the Beethoven Concertos volume 2nd of September. 

This is the first volume in a series of three recordings from AMC with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bogotá, which will be the first recording made in Latin America of all of Beethoven’s concertos for piano and orchestra, including the piano version of the violin concerto.
Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no 4 and the Violin Concerto in the version for piano are musical siblings, composed end to end, one after the other in what seems to be a time of relative tranquillity. Written in the keys of G major and D major, which in Beethoven’s world seem very much connected to light and happiness, both concertos radiate a positive view of life.
As one of the leading Scandinavian pianists, the award-winning pianist and composer Niklas Sivelöv has taken his career to new international heights with an extensive catalogue of recordings for such labels as BIS, Caprice, Dacapo, Naxos, Toccata Classics and AMC Classical, some of which have been awarded the
Diapason d’or, CHOK and the Penguin Rosette.
His concert career spans four continents, including venues such as the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Barbican, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Tivoli Copenhagen and the Atheneum in Bucharest.
He has won critical acclaim and enchanted audiences for his artistic temperament, impeccable technique and spellbinding stage presence.
The album is produced by Daniel Davidsen and the recording is made in a circular formation, which gives a very natural and dynamic sound.
