  • "Between complaining pathos and fiery flamenco.
    [...]
    The musical presentation was steeped in emotional cantability and expressivity in the first and balanced polyphony in the second choral.
    [...]
    Two seldom played song arrangements were presented in the program: 'Unrühe' and 'Am Grabe der Geliebten' from 'Trauerlieder' by Johann Kaspar Mertz. Again a loving interpretation of the original was given by the musicians, full of cantabile lament.

    By means of the 'Milonga' by Jorge Cardoso and a Brazilian samba written by Giuseppe Farrauto the area of arrangements was left: This was elegant, dreamful, happy, powerful and sonorous interpreted music, in which folklore and artificial demand met each other.
    [...]
    And when pieces like 'Oriental' from 'Danzas Españolas' by Granados or 'Cordoba' and 'Cataluña' from 'Suite Espagnole' by Albéniz are played in such manifold virtuosity, you are nearly willed to attest them an advantage of nativeness. Also in the suite of five songs and dances from Latin America arranged by Len Williams [...] Röhler and Graeber showed their great variability of Expression.

    As an encore after a long applause a folkloristic piece 'El paño moruno' was presented, full of flamenco spirit up to the final fiery chord."

  • "On 16. March the Duo D'Arvid performed a guitarconcert at the curch of Alt-Aumund.
    [...] With many acoustic colours they led the audience through pieces from Johann Kaspar Mertz. Folksongs vom Latin America sounded happy and powerfull. The audience was enchanted and spent thunderous applause."

  • "[...] Arvid Graeber and David Röhler from Germany entertained the audience with their classical guitar playing in a professional manner. [...] The audience was supplied with a well balanced interplay in the slow pieces as well in the lively pieces, which attracted the ears of the audience in the faintest sounds."
