"One gets the impression conducting is in his blood. The precise bouncing beat combines gracefulness with the effective"
“Akerwall conducts Rossini's score remarkably safely, sparklingly brilliant and praiseworthy"
"It is a special experience. Akerwall has composed an atmospheric music facing infinity and simplicity. It is neither classical nor modern but owns the atmosphere of the timeless of both worlds and is at times approaching the boundary of silence and tranquillity."
"Akerwall leitete das Konservatorieiumsorchester behutsam und doch effektiv, ökonomisch-klug und doch voller seelischem Mitschwingen".
"Akerwall conducted Mussorgski's pictures at an exhibition carefully and with great thought for details. Picture for picture it became moods of almost surrealistic appearance. An exhibition with emphasis on the orchestral composer Ravel.
An die Spitze des Orchesters steht mit dem Dänen Martin Akerwall ein hochtalentierter, ebenso schwungvoll wie subtil gestuft musizierender Dirigent, der für ein Höchstmass an Textverständlichkeit und für vokal-instrumentale Kongruenz sorgt.
"It became a Schubert's 5 fresh as a dew, light on the toes, full of charm, distinctive and intriguing natural in its musical logic. In Brahms' Academic Overture he seems to move freely and safely. No exaggerations. His overview is amazing. He has a nerve and there is lots of music in him".
