"The Bremer Kaffeehaus-Orchester is one of the most renowned ensembles
that offer salon music in Germany and the European neighbour countries."
"A quintet that swept the audience away with the most wonderful salon music, peppered with
a wealth of comedy interludes and a perfectly sophisticated performance and interpretation."
"The way the five musicians play is fantastic. And afterwards they make you wonder
if you've ever heard such a fresh, flexible and witty interpretation of Strauss before."
"Occasionally you wonder how it can be possible that this orchestra consists of only five
instrumentalists - the ensemble sounds so much like an orchestra..."
"Sublimely crafty performance with well-calculated bliss and glamorous refinement"
"Presented with verve, laced with irony, no anachronism
but rather an expression of pure joy of life"
"What the Bremer Kaffeehaus-Orchester has served here would make
many a member of a philharmonic orchestra break out in a sweat.
Witty playfulness, instrumental perfection and an aura of grippingly,
lively recording technology. An insider tip with an exclamation mark."
"Just the right thing for coffee time. And for any other time, too."
"These enchanting young people."
(Will Quadflieg im Weser-Kurier)
"The sophisticated as well as paradoxically
cheerful appearance made by the men in tails"
"If only Rieu's community of a million fans risked one look at the salon
of the Bremer Kaffeehaus-Orchester, they would be witness to a lively,
heart-wrenching Strauss presented by the five men in tails with Viennese
refinement and musician's heart blood..."
""...the scent of cream tarts, coffee and Cointreau ...
meltingly melancholic, as vibrant as a waltz or as passionate as a tango...
in perfect alignment with each other... The CD is consistent and cheerful."
