"As far as the audibility of the score in the individual voices, the gritty access, the springy lightness and the carefree feeling of romance were concerned, hardly any wishes remained open. The thrilling design and the dynamic drive of Reger and Mendelssohn and the interplay of spirit and musicianship without crude virtuosity made this concert evening an appealing experience. " Mannheimer Morgen / Fraenkische Nachrichten, Klaus Linsenmeyer, 6 February 2018
