Das Podium: winner in the category ensemble with George Crumb's "Vox Ballaenae"

Press Reviews

 2001

on: the question about the nature of the speed
[...] This is an exciting impact. Her wild and strange composition is called "Visions of Velocity" and "My Inner Mocean". 

OÖ Nachrichten (Reinhold Gruber) 

 

1995

on: the podium competition: George Crumb's "Vox Ballaenae"
The competition 'Das Podium' launched by director Kneihs was carried out this year for the 5th time. The clear winners in the category ensembles were Detlef Proges (flute), Roland Schueler (violoncello) and Tanja Brüggemann (piano) with an excellent performance of George Crumb's "Vox Ballaenae". 

OÖ Nachrichten (Gerhard Ritschel) 

 

1987

on: Why! You? ?!
[...] Tanja Brüggemann works quite the opposite, with no recognizable music forms from the tradition, and [...] offers a surprisingly rich palette of dynamic and moving elements and thus creates a significantly perceptible aura of personally nuanced poetry.
