"There is something redemptive about the growing interest in discovering and reviving the works of composers whose lives were cut short by the Nazis... Mr. Simmons and Mr. von Leïtis gave solid, affecting performances and were effective advocates for this music."

Aufbau, New York

 

"With the project Music from Theresienstadt,  Elysium- Between Two Continents and its directors proved again their artistic integrity and their courage to undertake risks... It was remarkable to see, how Gregorij von Leïtis- with high artistic taste- took back his person as a narrator in order to give pre-eminence to Rilke's text and Ullmann's music."
