Reviwes

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


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.
