Kieler Nachrichten, 3.5.2005: “Christian and Klaus, having immersed themselves deeply into the depths of the ancient Northindian classical music tradition, delivered insight into the high art of raga (melody) and tala (rhythm).
The changing airs of the sitar were prancing full of splendour above the voluminous, earth-bound sound of the tabla. The strict music system demands a certain spirituality, a good technique,a lot of discipline as well and thus allows for the good interaction. Christian and Klaus were convincing the listeners with their astoundingly authentic interpretations.”

Kieler Nachrichten, 18.3.2000: “Fascinating foreign soundscape. Those who thought that the interpretation of classical Indian music on the original string instrument would be confined to Indians were disabused of this notion. The ambitious sitarplayer Christian proved musicality, proficiency and empathy.”

Eckernf÷rder Zeitung, 18.3.2000: “This ‘Indian evening’ offered relaxation as well as musical pleasure.”
