Press Quotes

"Gruber makes use not only of simple motifs from the opera; he has created an independent, highly effective piece. The wind machine turns, the thunder sheet resounds, there are jazzy insertions, big trumpeting winds and an excellent cello solo… Gruber is on his best form as we know it, creating music which can also be fun, which surmounts all boundaries between tonality and the avant-garde.”

“An orchestral tableau skilfully conceived with great vitality…”
