MARTIN LUTZ There is a spell upon your lips
[..] "Det er gjort så fint og afbalanceret, at man som lytter indlever sig i den, som man kan gøre det i religiøs musik fra Mozart til Stravinskij, men den er som nævnt også tilsat et anderledes, spændende ”moderne” element, om man vil. [..]

AXEL BORUP-JØRGENSEN: Værker for bratsch
5/6 Stars

"Lytningen udvikler sig til en fem kvarter lang vandring ind i en dansk komponists særprægede landskab. Og hvad bratschen angår: Alene udtrykket -den skovmørke klang- siger meget om instrumentets karakter."

AXEL BORUP-JØRGENSEN: Værker for bratsch
"Det tilkommer nu om stunder DR at uddele de danske pladepriser. Der er et stykke tid til næste uddeling, men man må til den tid ikke glemme ”Viola Works” med musik, som for mange vil være værd at opdage i disse musikalsk overbevisende udførelser i en fin teknisk optagelse."

Rosing-Schow: Alliages
"Because Rosing-Schow tends toward dissonance and complexity in his style, a scheme of expansion often helps to give a sense of form and organization that allows the listener to navigate intuitively."

Karsten Fundal: Ekkozone spiller Karsten Fundal
"Små prikkende melodier pulserer rundt i de sugende klangbilleder, og hemmelighedsfulde klavertoner bryder ind, mens desperationen trænger sig på."

Karsten Fundal: Ekkozone spiller Karsten Fundal
"Det kunne ligne et klassisk eksempel på hjerne over for hjerte med EKKOZONEs portræt-cd med musik af Karsten Fundal. Men takket være musikerne fejler blodgennemstrømningen intet på cd-en."

Niels Rosing-Schow: Alliages
"Committed performances, as one might expect from this crop of the leading Danish musicians, and unexceptionally fine sound enhance the attractions of a release that certainly makes a representative introduction to another composer of note within the Danish (as indeed Scandinavian) musical firmament."

Ekkozone spiller Karsten Fundal
"Sindrige labyrindter af toner udfolder sig på slagtøjsensemblet Ekkozones debut-cd... Man hører Fundal både før og efter hans udviklende flirt med filmmusikken."

"Der musiceres med respekt og indlevelse [...] Lytteren forføres og suges ind i Rosing-Schows klangunivers, ikke noget tosset sted at befinde sig."

Poul Ruders: Koncerter
"This composer has always been a great orchestrator and manipulates the orchestra brilliantly in and around these 10 variations to create new and intriguing soundscapes at each and every turn."

Poul Ruders: Koncerter
"Apocalyptic might be a better description of the manner in which the percussionist, accompanied by dark orchestral rumblings, pounds his way through to a stark conclusion."

Poul Ruders: Koncerter
4/5 Stars

"Percussion virtuoso Matthias Reumert acts as a frame for a troubled landscape of aggressive, atonal adventures in all sections of the orchestra with an apocalyptic climax. Performances of these often crowded musical collages will never be easy, but there’s no hint of struggle and many flashes of comprehension on this disc."
