“…phenomenal clarinetist…Everything came together in Carl Nielsen´s Clarinet Concerto… The contrast with Fröst and his flowing tone, warm, silky and never unpleasant …, was fierce. Above all, the Swede had the instrument under perfect control from the full depth up to the softest high notes… Phenomenal.” (Rotterdams Dagblad, 7 April 2000)
