“Fortmann’s strength as a composer comes out – his is certainly an unusual approach – and a somewhat refreshing one. A certain optimism and joy shines through. It’s worth hearing.”
George Adams - American Record Guide
“This is fascinating. Fortmann, unlike some of his peers, seems to have entered into the arena of contemporary classical music successfully. All credit to the performers, who exude concentration throughout,. Padovani is a fine violinist. Fortmann’s style: poppy and full of surprises: pepper and sugar.”
Colin Clarke - Fanfare
"Swiss-born composer Thamas Fortmann is revealed here as a skilful and intuitive chamber music composer. His language is often old-fashioned, but his sense for timbral blending and his playfully neo-Baroque construction have a timeless appeal... clever, elegant, and compelling, which is a good general description of Thomas Fortmann’s work in general."
Peter Burwasser - Fanfare - January/February 2014
"...[Fortmann’s] chamber music if of interest regardless of whether we knew his music before or not ... a very palpable sense of structure conjoined with an artit’s attention to emotive power. The performances are quite fine. Thomas Fortmann has a vivid, inventive soul. Bravo and encore!"
