Hohenloher Kultursommer: Rhytmical bouncing in the Rondo
"Ensemble 4.1 impressed the entire audience with their performance of seldomly heard works by Beethoven, Gieseking and the American composer Oldberg."
"...a warm and soft-edged sound and wonderfully intimate moments..."
"Thomas Hoppe provided strings of pearls on the keyboard. Beautiful the duets between piano and woodwinds,especially those lyrical moments with the clarinetist, Alexander Glücksmann. The exchange between all instruments made for a high density of sound and depth in emotional layers."
