Kath. Kirchenzeitung 'It reminds the listener minimalism and contemporary music from Estland like Arvo Pärt, Peteris Vasks or Lepo Sumera.' Radio Bremen 'The music creates rooms for the listener, it's ongoing theme is ambivalence, showing that differences can coexist harmonically by showing them clearly.' Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung '...his guitar playing techniques are superb, and his music is very reflecting and intimate.'
