Corriere del Ticino, Switzerland 2000
"Idenstam showed his unique way of integrating pop music influences with organ in two movements from his own Cathedral Music played with an intense expression without forcing the sound and a very high class harmonical and natural playing. A true creator who really makes the audience to feel well."
Van Guardia, Spain 2004

Hvratsko slovo, Croatia 2005

L ´Alsace, Frankrike 1997
Morgunbladid, Island 1996
"What kind of magic makes an organ sound like this?
Overwhelming….. and in the middle a beautiful melody, sedusingly simple, in a whirlwind of rather demonic minimalistic structures. A picture from a fairy-tale…"
"His works and arrangements brought unto the instrument a seldom heard "Pop" character."
Neue Presse, Tyskland 1999
"His music sounds like something new and different."
Ongaku-No-Tomo, Japan 1994
"When Gunnar Idenstam improvised on Charpentiers theme he managed to create something completely new and peculiar. There seems to be no limit in what he can make the organ create. The categories starts to float apart, and yet, the melodic voice speaks very clearly. With Idenstam a mature reflection of the musical heritage with a distans added, and a dazzling technique has come together in something so great that it´s getting very close to the limit of human possibilities ."
