Review of her solo-concert in Germany: KulturZelt Kassel,June 20.th.-04:

“Uncompromising! One chair,one microphone,and little else. Sidsel Endresen lifts the art of singing to the highest level - yet she is completely natural and unceremonious. Her unforgettable performance astonished the audience and put them in a trance! This is not about traditional singing,or about acrobatics - but about music that is filled with a strange and wild beauty. A big “thank you” to the festival-team who had the courage to present exciting and new music in between all the “safe” acts of the festival!” Wollf von Rechenberg/Cityzene Kassel
