Siegfried Steinkogler, 2002

Press Reviews

29. October 2001

on the orchestral work "Die Ebene am See"
[...] the world premiere of a very carefully worked out "tone poem" in which the characteristics of the different groups of instruments employed provide for a very good sound. The musicians have become ​​friends immediately with such obviously appreciative material.

Salzburger Nachrichten (Karl Harb)

 

[...] sophisticated instrumentation [...] A piece that you definitely want to hear again, and that was also warmly welcomed.

Salzburger Volkszeitung (Ernst P. Strobl)
