…music with enormous depth and beauty

Mats Liljeroos/ Hufvudstadsbladet

Niklas Winter has made all the arrangements on this album. The result is very meditative and beautiful music. The album consists of elements from jazz and modern classical music. Both Niklas and Severi show enormous improvisational skills.
