“[…] The six musicians of the ensemble bring justice to this universe of sound (about Insieme by Aureliano Cattaneo). […] Kept together from eye blinking or from a subtle time beating, the musicians walk through the score with incredible skills (about Logos II by Simone Movio). […] Mdi’s performance (of Vortex Temporum by Gerard Grisey) deserves high respect for their capacity to develop such an intensity of sounds, considering the tipe of orchestration. […] We have to thank the musicians for their courage to perform this piece after such a long and artistically demanding program”.

La Repubblica – November 4h 2012 – Concert at festival Milano Musica, Milan (Italy)
“(…) The milanese ensemble under the direction of Robert HP Platz is a proven specialist for New Music. They play in perfect concentration and care, a great sense for fine nuances in articulation and shades of timbre. They managed to raise the audience’s enthousiasme most in the Quintet by Emanuele Casale, the most expressive work of the evening, and in “Quodlibet” by Scodanibbio, a work full of overtones, that leads viola and cello in untypical high registres (…)”
Ruhr Nachrichten – March 9th 2006 – Concert at Dortmund Konzerthaus (Germany)
