Mozartwoche Salzburg: 

Joy from the Glass Armonica

Vienna Philharmonic, Boulez and Bronfmann

"...The atmosphere was mysterious and ungraspable, almost otherworldly, filled with dreamlike shadings. A major, absolutely compelling success!"

Kronezeitung


Bodenseefestival, Friedrichshafen

"... An agile, sensitive performance... exhibiting superb interplay..."

Schwäbische Zeitung

Int. Haydntage Eisenstadt

A Sparkling Highlight: The Vienna Glass Armonica Duo

"...In this perfectly balanced performance, ... met on a mutual level of commensurate virtuosity..."

Die Presse

Würzburger Mozartfest

"...Finding this duo was a stroke of luck for the Salzburg Mozart Festival. No one in the hall could resist the charm of these tones; seldom does such an enthralled silence palpably pervade a concert hall after the very first notes..."

Schwäbische Zeitung 

"The interplay of the two artists was perfect; even at incredibly fast tempos the phrasing was executed with precision."

Kurier


"An impressive finale for the Salzburg Mozart Festival. Performing with precision, the two artists delivered an absolutely captivating programme."

Salzburger Nachrichten


 "...Played with this type of perfection, the glass armonica and the verrophone are capable of producing all harmonic structures and dynamic shadings.

Also impressive is the creativity of Gerald Schönfeldinger, who has succeeded in realizing personal psychograms in his compositions..."

 Thüringer Allgemeine


The Sound of Glass for Modern Souls

."...This creative, innovative treatment of delicate tones is exciting:  

This is the way the glass armonica can and must live on..."

Frankenpost


   

."...In the middle, the two glass music artists announced the performance of an eerie eventide dance, and it became apparent that old glass instruments can also produce modern fantasies. Thus the Vienna Glass Armonica Duo expanded the scope of expression of these instruments so that suddenly they were no longer contemplative in character..."

 Sächsische Zeitung


 

"...Whatever the Schönfeldingers play -and they do so with glittering perfection -the hearers are filled with a sense of joy both earthly and ethereal..."

 Nordbayrischer Kurier
