Maggie Cotton, the Birmingham Post (UK), May 2006, reviewing Johannes’ concert during the Bromsgrove Festival.
”Möller’s programme, while accessible and attractive, is also thought-provoking and intelligently executed.
…Möller’s playing is lucid rather than flashy, his tempi in generally on the leisurely side; like any any good painter, he prefers a restricted palette in order to not obscure the underlying structure.
…A debut with much to recommend it, then.”
William Yeoman, The Gramophone (UK), April 2006, in a review of the CD JOHANNES MÖLLER PLAYS SPANISH MUSIC
”Möller designed this concert, opening the latest series of the South Bank Centre’s ‘Fresh’ series, to display the full range of his talent and technique.
…quite breathtakingly, Möller put his instrument through its paces technically while putting himself through the mill emotionally.”
Kenneth Carter, Classical Source (UK), February 2006, reviewing Johannes’ concert in the Purcell Room in London
”On this hearing he is already a mature artist with excellent technique and as recorded here produces so beautiful a tone that I had to dig deep in my guitar collection to find something comparable. He is also a stylish musician with feeling for the musical phrase.
…There is a cornucopia of immaculately executed and artistically superb music-making on this disc which can be recommended, also for some rarely encountered music.”
MusicWeb-International (UK), January 2006, in a review of the CD JOHANNES MÖLLER PLAYS SPANISH MUSIC
