“The braveness and energy which characterized the first piano quintet return this year in a more refined form. Damström has a strong and original composer voice.”

Anna Pulkkis, Hufvudstadsbladet 10.6.2018

“Everything in this opera works! The story about a king who wants to decide over everyone is well written, perfect for a children’s opera. Cecilia Damström’s challenging and interesting compositions add a new dimension to the production. Also the scenography is simply stunning.”

Sofia Torvalds, Kyrkpressen

“It is a musical challenge to compose music that considering the pedagogical aspect is singable and playable for a very young student orchestra. But this is exactly what Cecilia Damström has managed to accomplish! If the first impression were that the music is Gebrauchsmusik that doesn’t seek any higher ambitions, this impression will fade away at the latest by the time the boy soprano Tinder sings his aria.”
