Nominated to Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy)

Category: TONO Composers’ Prize

«This recording is a terrific achievement. Christophersen’s work is a complex, large-scale piece of writing that is clearly taxing for both singers and players. The resulting recording has a real immediacy and filmic vividness.» Robert Hugill on The Lapse of Time

A Requiem for Sailors at War: «an incredibly beautiful music, in which beauty and incurable grief appear in a conceptless union. Such a paradoxical reconciliation does not exist in real life, but can be experienced in music if the composer is able to show it to us. That is what Bjørn Morten Christophersen does in his Requiem for Sailors at War– a new Norwegian musical masterpiece». Helge Iberg, Ballade (June 15th 2022)

«vivid, varied, and deeply expressive» on Audiens

«Exceptionally successful on Darwin […] This music is so great […] that one wants to hear it again and again» Tidens Krav on The Lapse of Time

«dieses brillante Orchesterstück […] Schöpfung und Nachschöpfung schienen hier aus den […] glasklaren Quellen zu kommen» Rheinische Post on Recitatives

«unmittelbar ansprechenden rhetorischen Kraft und einer belebenden Klangvielfalt» NRZ on Recitatives

«Christophersen […] fully succeeds at pushing the bounds of choral writing while maintaining an emotional directness that never loses touch with his audience.» on Audiens

«bode brightly for the future of Norwegian music and choral music generally» Audiphile Audition on Audiens
