“A key work of 20th century piano music” - Universal Edition Vienna

“"This work, a masterpiece of restraint, reflects the musical imagination of someone who has spent long periods in the quiet recesses of the mind." - Terry Riley

"Its hard to put into words exactly what his work brings to me, but there is a sense of meditative peace mixed with a deep questioning of the world. I find it transcendental, music that does not weave a human story, but a deep internal view and simultaneously vast as the cosmos." - Dustin O'Halloran

“I would say that behind my artistic work, as an aim or hope, is the need to find myself. In other words: despite all the separating structures, the division of all the work, the ideologies, fixed ideas, systems, despite the state and everything that ceaselessly tries to separate and divide us, I fundamentally want to be complete.” - Hans Otte (1979)
