The music of Roland Dahinden and Hildegard Kleeb has grown from a combination of individual virtuosity, a shared life, a special environment and the gradual mutation and transformation of things in time. Stones is the expression of all of those things as well as a very special musical conception that generates different patterns, cycling forwards and backwards, inwardly and outwardly. - Stuart Broomer, February 2016
