Reviews

Milan Rericha demonstrates even sole musician can amaze audience

St. Galler Tagblatt for Symphonia Classic 2020


It is hard to write about the art of Milan Rericha. It is just excellent. He perfectly controls his breath, masterfully plays, his sound is round and warm and most of the time you get the impression he is not breathing. He does not miss a note, not even in the most exciting passages, nor in the technically demanding pianissimos...

Klasika Plus for Lípa Musica 2018


Demanding wind music with all delicacies. Especially Rericha's music full of humor in Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin in second half, and after interval when everybody thought the spirit of the evening cannot be any better, was cause of enormous enthusiasm. 

Thurgauer Zeitung for Symphonia Summernight 2017


Rhapsodic clarinet lines adding drama and warmth to performance.., ..brilliant clarinet playing both aurally and visually exciting.., ..each gesture is unique and has its own character in Rericha's commanding performance.., ..Milan Rericha's performance were pure entertainment and excitement with calisthenics and effortless articulation.., ..Rericha brought the audience to their feet..

The Clarinet Online for ClarinetFest 2016


"Runs, trills, sound cascades..." Soloclarinettist Milan Rericha whom belongs to the best in his profession incredibly manages enormously hard pieces, such as A. Copland Clarinet Concerto written on request of Benny Goodmann, with virtuosity of a magician, controlling large range of instrument with obvious playfulness and ease, with neverending breath, resolute fingers skilfulness and with awesome musical temperament. Enthused audience applauded again and again.
