"An absolute highlight was the premiere of the evening: Andri Joël Harison composed a "Lullaby" {Schlaflied} after Paul Celan, elegiac and gently reminiscent of orchestral songs by Richard Strauss. Erich Polz on the conductor's stand conjured up great cinema with the eleven-member ensemble, and Lorin Wey's tenor moved the audience to audible expressions of enthusiasm."

"The radiant personality of the young musician furthermore enhanced this lucky feeling of the lightness of being. His own composition "Fledermaus-Fantasie" - highly virtuosic and brillantly written over the melodies of Johann Strauss' operetta - was a great treat for the attending guests."

Austrian-Japanese Society

"An impressive musical statement."
