Per Arne Glorvigens command of the bandonenon was delicate and vital.
– New York Times 09.10.1998
If Per Arne Glorvigen werent such and expert on the bandoneon, we could make jokes about his playing the quintessential South American instrument pretty well for a Norwegian. But his accordionlike instrument brougt such piercing bite to Piazzollas angular rythms and such caressing mellowness to his lyrical flights that jokes arent needed.

…The performances precision was breathtaking. With a glance and a nod Glorvigen locked his partners (The Alban Berg Quartet) to the dancefloor, up and down those sad, lurching tango phrases that never want to end.

Glorvigen and the Alban Berg Quartet gave the piece an impressive symphonic sweep, as well as gripping sadness.

Bandoneonplayer Per Arne Glorvigen is excellent,his pliable tempos are linked with superb dexterity.(Critic on the record Tango Sensations with the Alban Berg Quartet).

Tango as it should be…
Playing solo, each of these four young musicians (Tango for 3) shows a profound knowledge of the instrument and a genuine feeling for the genre. In their acting they also reveal a good stage sense. With mischievous glances or witty comments, they manage a special sort of complicity with the audience.
