…it is vital, angular music, which the superb Canadian ensemble Aventa, under the direction of Bill Linwood, implemented with precision” – Sueddeutsche, München

“Moritz Eggert’s “Pong”, based on the computer tennis game, earned an enthusiastic response from the crowded auditorium in the Black Box of the Munich Gasteig.

With the premiere of Paul Frehner’s “God save the human cannonball” was a effective prelude to Munich’s A•DEvantgrade Festival 10. The Montreal composer looked to the festival’s motto “playing” with the phenomenon of ecstasy, as in the amusement park rollercoaster. The dizzying feeling linked with the compulsion to repeat it as often as possible were brought to full effect, thanks to an uncommonly compelling interpretation of the 15 member Aventa Ensemble under the direction of Bill Linwood.” – B5 Kultur, München
