It has been said about HK Gruber that "throws off labels as fast as pundits can affix them. Neo-romantic, neo-tonal, neo-expressionistic, neo-Viennese: he isn’t any of these things, so much as a sentient composer who keeps responding to whatever musical stimulus, be it highbrow or lowbrow, 12-tone or 7-tone, bitter or sweet, that comes his way."

BBC Music Magazine

May 2007


“Gruber performs the Artmann settings himself, in a fruitily rhetorical way that evokes the Viennese cabaret of the pre-war era… Martin Grubinger's performance of the percussion concerto is just as vividly characterised.”
