"Jonathan Östlund's music is poetic, with poetry being his prevailing source of inspiration.
He expertly handles sophisticated harmonies, coupled with a natural melody and lyricism. He embodies luminous, contemporary and varied music which never loses
its humanity and expressiveness. His style belongs to the great composers of this century."
