Reviews are in for Bach’s Secret Files!!


“This quartet is on to something quite marvelous: a hybrid interplay between jazz and classical music – even opera – that should please fans of both genres, and expose the separatists to the virtues of each form…delightful…”
Ken Franckling’s Jazznotes
delightful… rich… delicious… dramatic… brilliant… Fans with open ears will be rewarded by hearing these outstanding performances.”
AllMusicGuide (Ken Dryden)
“…a superb marriage of jazz and classical music. Burgstaller’s tone on trumpet is gorgeous and expressive… The virtuosity of these group of musicians allows them to played with comfort either jazz, latin jazz or classical.”
JazzTimes (Wilbert Sostre)

Classical music for Jazz fans, Jazz music for Classical lovers!

More reviewers LOVING “Mozart’s Blue Dreams” as Radioplay remains very strong (July 2009)

The reviews are coming in for “Mozart’s Blue Dreams”, and …it’s a HIT. We are playing on almost 100 stations now!

“hip and approachable… majestically sublime beauty… marvelous!” (Dan McClenaghan)
“ingenious… ethereal moments of true beauty and genius” (C. Michael Bailey)
“stunning… (Mozart) surely would consider (this) hip if he revisited the planet to jam with them.”
JazzNotes (Ken Franckling)
‘…the entire album can serve as something of a compendium of fusion approaches that have achieved wide currency, as a suggestion for new directions, and as a superior instrumental performance in itself, with Burgstaller’s quiet trumpet stylings. Recommended, and enjoyable…’
“very engaging music, beautifully crafted and likely to please both the jazz and classical listener. Compare it perhaps with Jacques Loussier, The Swingle Singers or Lalo Schiffrin, all of whom have successfully brought the classical and jazz families together.”
Jazz Society of Oregon
“remarkable, incredibly played and delightful”
KUNC 91.5 (Colorado NPR Affiliate)
“Recommended. Very tasteful for lovers of both genres.” (Michael Matheny) raves “ethereal moments of true beauty and genius”, comparing the BM4 with James Galway and Tiempo Libre. (June 2009)

Jazz and classical musics should be friends. They have much in common. It is conceivable that a synthesis of the two could be achieved as successfully as that existing between jazz and rock. These jazz/classical offerings crescendo with the Burgstaller Martignon 4’s Mozart’s Blue Dreams and Other Crossover Fantasies. This is music of phantasm, pretty much beyond description. The group’s “Ave Maria” and ” Oblivion” are ethereal moments of true beauty and genius—like the rest of this recording. read more…
