Rezension:

“Die eigensinnige, hochexpressive, verletzliche Kammermusik des vor dreizehn Jahren freiwillig aus dem Leben geschiedenen Komponisten ist bei den Walden Chamber Players in besten Händen. Neben dem Duo für Violine und Cello von 1991, bei dem von ferne Leos Janácek hereinzutönen scheint, ist es vor allem das Quintett für Klarinette, Violine, Viola, Cello und Klavier, das mit enormem Ausdrucksspektrum fesselt. Bis hin zum Übergang in das abschließende Adagio, einem Satz von seltener Klarheit und Schönheit.“
(Rezension zur CD "A Voice gone silent too soon", Walden Chamber Players 2013 / Juan Martin Koch, NMZ Dez.2013-Jan. 2014)

"Expansive and rhapsodic, with an especially tender and seraphic final adagio, the quintet shimmers and glows with sunset-glorious colors. The multifarious faster sections bound along, at first happily, then more and more frantically until the terrified clarinet lets out some piercing shrieks and the quintet subsides into its long, slow, concluding chorale, with the clarinet and strings offering gentle commentary as the piano’s solemn, ceremonious strophes descend into silence. 
(Mark Lehman, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, March/April 2014)

"The most poignant A Cinque ends with an Adagio of harrowing beauty, a simple descending idea on the piano set alongside ethereal interjections from the clarinet, violin, viola and cello. Eventually the piano figure seems to win over the other instruments and the music draws to an agonising but serene close. It is draining to listen to this and at once to think of the tragedy of Schedl’s end."
