Press Quotes

Berg/Verbey Sonata op. 1

“Theo Verbey’s orchestration of Alban Berg’s Sonato for piano Op.1 from 1984 sounded Mahleresque in its ability to carry one away. The beauty of sound is not only astonishing, but also serves to shine a beacon on Berg’s romantic roots.”

Joachem Valkenburg, NRC Handelsblad, 16 September 2005
