• Zu Philip Glass 'In der Strafkolonie' 6/24

    Mit sängerischer Brillanz und ausgestellter Interpretationsvielfalt feiert das Ensemble um Valdés-Stauber und Grossmann das Kafka-Jubiläum. Es scheut sich vor Gestaltung nicht, gibt aber zu erkennen: Wir wollen die Parabeln nicht entschlüsseln und die Paradoxien nicht auflösen. Die Fragen sollen brennend bleiben.


    In the end, music achieves what words can hardly do. Even if some voices fail, it overcomes the speechlessness. We hear and see, think and understand, remember and act. Hopefully!

  • About the project 'Koffler's Fate' 11/2023

    This openness, which on the one hand remains unmistakable, but at the same time forces the listener to engage in their own debate, is a strength of this evening [... The JCOM uses] Koffler's works as artistic material to convey to today's audience how present the difficult past remains. And that is perhaps more sustainable than moving on to business as usual in false emotion.

  • To the Weinberg Festival 05/2019

    A clarinet calms an angry cello, then the two find themselves in dialogue. Music as a question-and-answer game. Whispering carpets of sound as if from outer space - it is all indescribably beautiful. And is presented intensely by an alert orchestra and brilliant soloists.

  • To the PERFORMANCE of 'Words & Music' 07/2016

    A sensitively working ensemble from the [JCOM] worked congenially with the conductor Daniel Grossmann and the voices of Götz Otto and Bibiana Beglau, who explored the limits of language with virtuosity and sensuality.

  • To the Jewish New Year Concert 10/2015
