"Viva Musica! festival proved with this concert that it is possible to present works younger than 50 years. Thus, even the random participants had the opportunity to "lose themselves" in a transcendent hour of continuous sound."

"...Over the ten years of its existence, it has increasingly focused on lesser-known or completely new compositions that place unusual technical and mental demands on the players. This time the orchestra has done a very good job with microtonality. It was evident that the musicians played with interest and understanding; mathematically perfect and harmonically pure harmonies rang out with intonational certainty. In terms of the choice of compositions and the quality of their performance, the concert far surpassed the format of an accompanying showcase of musical experiments with strange forms of tuning linked to a local academic conference, and if the festival attracts a wider audience in the future, it could become one of the major events of the Prague music scene. After the concert, several audience members confirmed to me that the selection of pieces and their performances satisfied both connoisseurs of microtonality and unprepared listeners encountering this area of music for the first time."
