About our new CD with music by Christopher Tye: „One hour packed with a brilliant amalgam full of affects, atmosphere, colors, composition and polyphonic techniques, harmonies, tempi... The interpretation of the scores shows a deep understanding and empathy. The choice of recorders is always convincing, it even seems to be the only true and possible solution, even though it is theoretically possible to imagine other combinations as well. The style of playing is very accurate, the tempi are in consistent with the scores, the high flutes are never shrill, the bass flutes purr like cats, and the final chords stand firm and solid like a house.“
Koen Dieltiens, in “Blokfluitist”, volume 8, N. 2

„Four recorders, four personalities, four timbres. The quartet plays full of spirit, with the highest virtuosity and varied tempi, savouring the boundless possibilities of the polyphony. A great pleasure thanks to a perfect ensemble performance.“
Wolfenbütteler Zeitung, April 11 th , 2016

„The examples of the wide variety of sound colors, the flexibilty of the recorder and its virtuosity, impressed the audience of young and old people: the music can be swinging, vivid, or dramatic, if only the affects are made clear enough. With the Boreas Quartett, the polyphonic constructions of the concert sounded like four parts out of four hearts and came together in a skillful play of retreating and emerging the musical lines.“

„Perfectly harmonized did the musicians lead their audience from one highlight to the next, playing music of the renaissance, baroque, and modern period. While the old pieces touchedthe souls, the more recent ones reflected the rhythm of our times, like digital computer sounds. The numerous listeners were completely thrilled by this outstanding concert, which showed from the long and forceful applause.“
Andelfinger Zeitung, October 2014

„For two weeks Bonn was under the sign of the German National Music Competition (DMW) that took place for the 40 th time. The scholarship-holders of the DMW presented themselves at the forum of the Beethovel hall on the evening before the laureates' concert.Outstanding on that evening was the Boreas Quartett that enchanted us with quadrophonic surround sounds of very early and very modern music.“

„Professor Doctor Harald Vogel introduced the award-winning Boreas Quartett Bremen as a „living organ“. The four young musicians were invited by the Arp-Schnitger-Gesellschaft to play a concert in the Bartholomäus church in Golzwarden. They gave a first-class concert, exploring the sound possibilities of their instruments to the very limits, and they elated the audience with their vivid expressivity, outstanding technique, perfect intonation and incredible precision in interacting.“
