Press Reviews

Hannes Pendl, a composer whose music reflects the spirit of the time and yet sounds beautifully , whose music defies the conventional styles and yet is rooted in tradition. 

Offene Grenzen, Ö1 (Alice Ertlbauer)  


Hannes Pendl is a composer of idiosyncratic personality who has influenced a new style of music when being a risk-taker at the same time. Pendl emancipates himself from the traditional styles, he defies them and without basing his music on convention, by chance and almost unconsciously he develops a kind of music which contains a lot of musical tradition but also represents a new form of music. The compositions reflect a multi-faceted personality whose musical interests does not accept boundaries between the different styles. Musical cultures of different countries and epochs have taken effect on Hannes Pendl, they merge in a harmonious way and become a new kind of beautiful modern music which reveals the priority of the European musical culture in a unique way.
