“Unpredictable and understated, the Windisch Quartett exhibit wildness and coolness in equal measures - but never strait-laced crotchets” - Jazzcournal.co.uk 

“Die eindrückliche Performance und die ungewöhnlichen Kompositionen Julius Windischs machen Chaos zu einem mitunter dringlichen, insgesamt bemerkenswert souveränen Debütalbum.”
Norbert Krampf (freier Journalist, u.a. FAZ), 2020

“But it was Windisch's piano playing that impressed the most. (...) not because it was technically brilliant, as to show how much he could, but because he commented and added elements to the vocals that were extremely original and fine.”

Colin Vallon, 2017

„I think JW is one of the most gifted students I was ever fortunate to teach during my 18-year long teaching career at the University of Arts, Berne."
