“More gleaming, the anthology of Venetian music of the Seicento, mixing works by Marini, Rovetta and Valentini around the theme of the four seasons, is superbly defended by the soprano Hana Blažíková (impeccable diction and agile vocalisation), supported with fervour and intelligence by a solid vocal and instrumental ensemble (BERNVOCAL), under the energetic and attentive direction of Fritz Krämer. (Stagioni d’amore, Passacaille, *****).”


“The ensemble BERNVOCAL, under the lively and inspired direction of Fritz Krämer, is impeccable. This enchanting and constantly touching disc is hardly worth depriving of an Absolute Joker. Duly noted!”

“Fritz Krämer allows the waves of music, the phrases that go to the climax and back to silence, to be savored broadly in the ‘Anthems’ … With BERNVOCAL, Fritz Krämer expands the flourishing Bernese baroque scene with a vocal ensemble at the top level. A glorious future is to be granted to him.”
