Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Max Nagl's feeling for ambience is undoubtedly connected with his long experience as a composer of stage music for dance performances. Here, too, he creates music that does not exist for itself alone but, functioning as a backdrop, has to supply the emotional framework as well. "He produces music as furniture of the psyche," wrote Christian Scheib about this brilliant assimilator."-Wolfgang Kos
