Unpredictable and understated, The Windisch Quartett exhibit wildness and coolness in equal measures – but never strait-laced crotchets

Intricate (...) on the one hand, melodic and fragile on the other (...). If you pay full attention to the CD (...) you will be rewarded

The musical interpretation is sensitive and tasteful. There is not much more to wish for. A strong debut of a talented

The flow is remarkable and the improvisation never gets dry and mechanical. (...) Look out for Julius Windisch, bandleader, composer and alchemist for the new century. Recommended
