"Composers of Norway, On Down Through Many Eras"
"...The two settings of Solveig's Song" as well as "A Swan" and "At Rondane" were given gorgeously turned readings... The Orchestra of St. Lukes played for Mr. Brevig with the warmth and precision that have become its hallmark"
—THE NEW YORK TIMES, Allan Kozinn
"A Sampling of Norway's Composers Old and New"
"...Fortunately, the concert was masterminded by the conductor Per Brevig, a longtime champion of Norwegian music and an enterprising musician."
—THE NEW YORK TIMES, Anthony Tommasini
"The Grieg Society Marks the Millenium with an Outstanding Linoln Center Program"
"The high quality of the orchestra was satisfying and obviously linked to the fact that conductor Brevig demonstrated a compelling command of his role, as he did in fact throughout the evening. It was an immensely persuasive performance."
—NORWAY TIMES, NEW YORK CITY, Rolf Stang
"Edvard Grieg Centennial Gala Concert"
"Brevig's conducting is clear and elegant, authoritative without being authoritarian. In Grieg's Three Pieces from "Sigurd Jorsalfar", he got fine, enthusiastic playing from the orchestra".
—NEW YORK CONCERT REVIEW, Edith Eisler
"A Millenium Concert - celebrating American and Norwegian musical Kinship"
"... the orchestra played expertly under Brevig's authoritative leadership" "...It was the occasion for much estimable and rewarding music making."
—MUSICAL AMERICA, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Robert S. Clark
