New York Times Article

Read about Christoph’s and The Wave Quartet’s debut at the Elbphilharmonie in the NY Times:

„HAMBURG — “It’s good if you keep clapping,” the percussionist Christoph Sietzen told the audience at the Elbphilharmonie concert hall here on a recent evening, “because the next piece is extremely quiet and I need to catch my breath.”

Mr. Sietzen had just completed a fiercely athletic rendition of “Rebonds” by Iannis Xenakis and was composing himself for the crystalline stillness of Arvo Pärt’s “Variations for the Healing of Arinushka.” (The combination is a percussionist’s equivalent of the Olympic biathlon.) When the applause, now even louder and mixed with laughter, had died down, he took up position at a marimba and coaxed from it sounds of rapturous fragility.“
