Press Quotes

Deutsch

"Schwemmer’s music places itself at the service of the story and the text: strongly built upon a dramaturgy of tone colours, it accentuates the events and leads, especially in the quiet moments with harmonics in the strings and wind noises in the wind instruments, to oppressive moods ... The young audience is neither spoon-feed with sweet cuteness nor admonished with a raised finger." (Michelle Ziegler, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 19 Nov 2012)
