Press Reviews

12. May 2003 

The only really bright spot was the promising cellist W.Z., who approached Bach's third solo Suite - with dance routines of X.IDA- in a quite impetuous way, but technically brilliant, and in the second program he knew to fascinate with his two nuevo -formations"anochesido" and "Continuum".

OÖ Nachrichten

 

30. April 1999

[...] However, the Nigel Kennedy of the cello seems to be popular [...], actually at the end the cheers reached the volume of a pop-concert [...]
