“Torun Stavseng is so free in controlling her instrument, that it allows her to perform the most challenging repertoire with full personal integrity and a rooted stylistic feeling.”
Royal Swedish Academy of Music when rewarding Stavseng Honorary Prize 2010


“Cellist Torun Stavseng and pianist Anna Christensson pounced on Britten’s Sonata for Cello and Piano with a boldly forceful interpretation… I found that this aesthetic discord of movement was harmonious with the dissonant piece, and Stavseng’s broken horsehair testified to the sheer energy of the work. The acoustics failed to daunt them and they revelled in the ringing staccatos and fortissimos, grinding skillfully in meticulous runs of multiple notes and spectral phrases.”
Lucy Armstrong, Bachtrack review April 2012 IMS Prussia Cove, Penzance


“Torun Stavsengs secure, focused, flawless performance contributed to make this a truly festive concert.
