"He puts the church under electric power," headlines the Swiss daily Der Bund about the world premiere of Thomas Kessler's oratorio under Jonathan Stockhammer's direction. The gripping work can be heard again at the Wien Modern festival in Vienna on 14 November.

"Sounding dramas play out between abrupt oases of silence," continues the review of the September 2 performance at the Bern Music Festival. "Inconceivable, invisible ones, for which there are hardly any words, because any analysis misses the mark. It is not able to say anything about the effect. And that's what it's all about."

Jonathan Stockhammer will perform the work again with Ensemble Nikel twice at Wien Modern on November 14.
