„Wer eine Baßklarinette noch nie ‘aus der Nähe’ gehört hat, kann mit dieser CD leicht süchtig werden nach ihrem bald samtweichen, bald agressiven Ton!” (Musik News) „Souverän und erstaunlich klangfarbenreich.” (Die Zeit)

”The bass clarinet is featured in all its extraordinary tonal variety as a chamber, concerto, and solo instrument on this recording marking the remarkable debut of a young virtuoso. This is an interesting recital, nicely performed, which certainly helps to fill a void in concert music for winds.” (Fanfare)
