I was so impressed by your grasp of Traumwerk in particular the fantasy of the work. It was chamber music playing as it should be, disciplined and spontaneous, intimate and yet generous. Your formal grasp of the work displayed an intricate sense of line and tone and an instinctive feeling for shape. James Dillon

For me, Cecilia and Martin Gelland belong to the most engaged and charismatic interpreters of contemporary music on the European arena. In common projects, their extremely professional attitude and their intelligent transformations of compositorial structures impressed me again and again. To this comes an unbelievable balance between clear analysis of the parameters at hand and an existentialistic power of interpretation which one very rarely experiences. Bernd Franke
