"... In Beyond Bossa Nova, Andreas is playing Brazilian classical music that no one in the United States or in Europe knew about. And the kicker was: people in his own country who are in the classical music business, didn't know that music either. So that's the point of his CD: His CD tells a story." - David Srebnik, Lecturer at Purchase College, Creative Advisor and Career Architect for All Art is Personal

"Beyond Bossa Nova is an impressive album; lovely playing and presentation....Bravo! - Laurie Sokoloff, former Solo Piccolo at Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and former Piccolo Professor at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. 

"I've listened to your album several times, and it's very well performed and recorded... The final track - "The Last Song" by Clarice Assad is especially moving." - Darren O'Neill, former Assistant Guitar Professor at Montclair State University.
