“The American virtuoso, undoubtly a master of commanding the different techniques of his instrument, proved to be a devoted interpreter of classical music.”
THE NATION, Bangkok/Thailand

“Bernard Hebb is a good instrumentalist with high technical qualities with an apparently unlimited pursuit of a beautiful sound.”
WESER-KURIER, Bremen/Germany

“What is exeptional and surprising in Bernard Hebb´s playing is, the sensibility of his sound, his flexible descriptive ability, his creative fantasy and the lack of virtuosic affectation.”
LIPPISCHE HEIMAT, Detmold/Germany

“Bernard Hebb is an exellent musician, familiar with all the delicacy and the numerous technical subtities of his instrument.”

CHAMBER MUSIC

Voiloncello and Guitar with Gunter Ribke, Violoncello

“The remarkably creative competence of the duo showed very quickly in the single dances of Enrique Granado´s (1867-1916) Danzas Españolas Op. 37, presented at the Schönebecker Castle recital. The musical fire and rythmic power in the presentation went beyond that of the original notation.”
WESER-KURIER, Bremen/Germany

“Both players produce some ravishing sounds, beautiful phrasing, good intonation and the ensemble is accurate throughout; it all adds up to an interesting and very worthwhile recording.”

Oboe and Guitar with Helmut Schaarschmidt, Oboe

“It makes no difference whether they perform baroque or contempoary music, original or arrangements, solo or duo: the remarkable interpretations of the two interpreters always met with approval.”
HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT, Hamburg/Germany

“The playing troughout is of a good, solid standard, with both performers producing a nice rich sound. Musically this is a very satisfying recording, the duo relying on musicanship rather than any technical wizardry.”
