|Solid Musik is Sandell's first CD solo piano recording, and the result is very much in the serious classical vein with a striking individual approach.
According to noted John Cage/Morton Feldman interpreter, Louis Goldstein, "the opening gestures of Solid Musik are stunning, and more stunning yet is Sten Sandell's ability to maintain the level of invention, interest, and intrigue throughout the entire collection of pieces. Part of the explanation must lie in the rare combination of talents in Sten's possession. The listener is able to take in both the pianist for whom technical limitations are not an issue, and a composers whose vision is complex, various, and bold. To have both arms of the musical art, the invention and the execution, maintained at such a high level by the same mind and spirit, leaves the listener embraced and comforted."
