Well blown and well plucked
The clarinetist, with a rich dynamic and a virtuoso range and the guitarist, equally engaged in the exchange offering a careful and supporting accompaniment, supplement each other in an exemplary way., With their cheerful charismatic approach, and their well-thought of explanations of the pieces they succeeded in creating a bridge with the audience.
(S. Wenger, “Berner Oberländer”)
Southern Warmth in Mid Winter
Gerrit Boeschoten & Daniel Jaun infect their audience with their rich repertoire on the one hand, on the other hand it was their differentiated and perfect interpretation that excited the audience. Both are virtuosi on the instruments, and both are masters in the art of playing together. The way in which their playing music together gives them joy was more than obvious for the whole Concert evening, and with their personal aura they created a wonderful atmosphere right from the beginning of the concert. Rarely played pieces, trouvailles so to say, were given new life by Gerrit Boeschoten and Daniel Jaun. This is a task that requires a lot of sensitivity and a love for the detail. The audience was grateful and their warm applause was proof of that appreciation.
(M. Baumann, “Echo von Grindelwald”)
Alphorns from the Italian bushes
Both musicians not only showed mastery of their instruments, but played together in a perfect harmony. The audience in the well-filled hall liked the program, and it rewarded the musicians with a well-deserved applause.

On tour with the Clarinet and the Guitar
In the serenade Op 16 for bassethorn and guitar a theme is skillfully developed in a line of variations, in which the basset horn has been allotted a very effective role. Gerrit Boeschoten mastered these tasks in a very convincing way and in good ensemble playing with the guitarist. That the way of playing of both musicians, while exchanging impulses with superior lightness showed a well-adaptedness to each other, became once more apparent in the Klezmer sounds.
These mostly traditional tunes, but also a few new ones in the old style are characterized by a rousing vitality, in which quieter, melancholy sounds are also embedded. The exciting music, played with lively imagination, met with a warm appreciation from the audience.
(A. Annen, “Berner Oberländer)
