Pressestimmen

„As a performer, too, he [Mike Svoboda] is capable of integrating himself into the fold, shining as a soloist or leaving the limelight to others – “Phonometrie” is yet another proof of Hussong’s charismatic and charming character and especially of the many talents of Anne-May Krüger, whose voice oscillates between beguiling purrs and slightly obscene fantasies“

Tobias Fischer, Tokafi

„Ihm gelingt das Kunststück, Satie auf die Spitze zu treiben, ohne ihm die Zähne zu ziehen, und das macht beim Hören wirklich Spaß, vor allem dann wenn sich Krüger mit manchmal wunderbar naiver, an Knabensoprane erinnernder Stimmzeichnung an Svobodas "French Songs" heranmacht.“

Dr. Stefan Drees, Klassik.com

„Gemeinsam mit den hervorragenden Musikern Stefan Hussong (Akkordeon) und Anne-May Krüger (Gesang) ist Mike Svoboda so ein facettenreiches Satie-Porträt gelungen, das klangliche wie ironische Aspekte von Saties Musik mit scheinbar einfachem Instrumentarium neu entdecken und klischeefern hören lässt.“
