” … a striking piano quartet by Gernot Wolfgang … His compelling solutions in Metamorphosis sounded neither forced nor artificial. At its core, the piece is a wild minor swing with Balkan Gypsy gestures and rhetoric.”

John Henken, The Los Angeles Times

” … a strikingly muscular and momentum-filled piece of music … for many the highlight of a wonderful musical evening … surprising, sometimes jarring – but never incoherent and never unmusical.”

Nis Kildegaard, Vineyard Gazette (Martha’s Vineyard)

” … a really compelling composition … ”

Walter Simmons, Fanfare Magazine

Metamorphosis fuer Streichtrio und Klavier gefaellt durch ein expressives, ideenreiche Wandlungen durchlaufendes Violin-Thema … “
