From the press: 

“das Konzert für Sopran-Saxophon ist eine reizvolle Klangstudie mit engmaschig sich reibenden Dissonanzen, leuchtenden Klangwolken und pulsierenden Tutti, worin auch schön gleitende Tangomelodien ihren Platz hatten”  Heidelberger Tageszeitung

 

“…Jihlava ist eine wilkommene repertoire Ergänzung!“  Musik zum Lesen

 

“Love Enchanted zorgde voor kippevel!” Brabants Dagblad

 

Jihlava berührt die Herzen der Menschen…Großartige Musik…

setzt ein Zeichen gegen den Irrsinn von Krieg und Vertreibung” Mährischer Grenzbote

 

“I hope that this version will give this austere, magnificent and underestimated work

the audience it deserves. Thank you!”
