"Radically utopian (Markuskirche): Because all the performers made music in an exemplary manner and with extraordinary sensitivity, Luigi Nono's sound figures unfolded delicately and so organically that poetry shone in the midst of all the rebellion." - HAZ

"With chamber music works by John Dowland and George Handel, interpreted by a string trio and soprano (Can she excuse me wrongs) and string trio and flute (The Triumph of Time and Truth), it was a coherent and varied programme that confidently presented not only the unfamiliar but also the familiar."
- Goslarsche Zeitung on "Departure into the Open Air
