Programme Note
Press Quotes

Lange excellently understands how to acoustically captivate his audience. His music does not sound demonstratively ‘childish’ or ingratiating, but rather ambitious and occasionally challenging also for adult ears. (Thomas Schacher, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 24 November 2013)

Musically composed throughout with great instrumental extravagance and written for voices that are up to the modern, expressive operatic style, The Canterville Ghost is full-fledged contemporary musical theater, colorfully orchestrated, harmonically challenging, and densely diverse in terms of form. (Herbert Büttiker, Der Landbote, 25 November 2013)
