"Meticulous research is presented with all the lyricism of a modernist musical style ... Bjørnstad's poetic prose has authority and beauty."

Lesley McDowell, Independent on Sunday



“It is not without good reason that Ketil Bjørnstad has been awarded the Prix des Lecteurs for To Music ... Like To Music, The River is great literature – sombre and uplifting at the same time.”     

   Mette Winge, Politiken

"This writer obviously posseses every kind of talent possible."

  Nils C. Ahl, Le Monde

   Winner of "Prix des Lecteurs 2008"


To Music is nominated for The Independent Foreign Fiction Prize 2010.
