Norrköpings Symfoniorkester, April 2019

“Larsson focused on the horizontal thinking with densities and thinnesses in the structure. But there were also underlying actions and events in this exciting music … As the most confident I experienced him in Richard Strauss’ ‘Don Juan’, which was a sober, dense and energetic performance that was very coherent. “

-Michael Bruze, Norrköpings Tidningar
