Reviews

"3" for the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart

The premiere of Andre’s work “3” for six voices – the title refers to the numerical value of pi and the Trinity – was in ideal hands with the Neue Vocalsolisten. The singers evoked a world of slowness and contemplation, which is typical of Andre’s work. A standing ovation.
Stuttgarter Zeitung, 8/12/2015

"über" for clarinet and orchestra

It [the SWR Symphony Orchestra’s prize] has been awarded to Mark Andre’s composition “über” for solo clarinet (Jörg Widmann), orchestra and live electronics. The jury was touched and deeply moved by the “delicacy of the sound” in this work.
Focus online, 18/10/2015

Is it still earthly music? Or is it the silence turned into sound that is simply too heavy to be born in its relentlessness? Given Widmann’s unique way of playing the piano and his mastery of avant-garde techniques, everything is possible. And above all, given Mark Andre’s music for the end of time, “über”, which traces the sounds so subtly and unsettlingly.
Badische Zeitung, 20/10/2015, Alexander Dick

"an" for violin and orchestra

In the world premiere of Mark Andre's "an", the violinst Carolin Widmann and the WDR Symphony Orchestra, which played sensitively under Tito Ceccherini, conjured a work of fragile softness.
Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, 11/05/2015, Rainer Nonnenmann

"E2" for cello and double bass

Mark Andre created a delicate sound network for violoncello and double bass. Andre’s score is captivating, the reduced sounds, which often only seem like dabs of sound, generate an immense tension.
