“Jessica Burri,
a singer, instrumentalist and
composer, knew how to capture her
audience with her art. Reciting, singing
and playing the dulcimer in a virtuoso
manner, she opened fascinating worlds
of sound for her listeners. …
Kersten Elisabeth Pfaff illustrated
impressively the events of Creation. …
Seriousness and clarity of interpretation
contributed here, as in other parts
of the program, to the clarification
of the contents. Recitation,
music and dance melted together
to a unit of unusually great
density and intensity.”

Recklinghaeuser Zeitung

“The program, a moving,
carefully crafted and
elaborate production, lasted
nearly 90 minutes, in which
dance and music – voice, singing and
instrumental interpretation –
melded together in a fantastic
and careful way.”
