Die Arbeit mit dem herausragenden ensemble recherche war eine große Herausforderung, denn da es keine spieltechnischen Begrenzungen gab, lag die Qualität der Komposition allein bei den Schaffenden. Die Arbeitsform in drei Stufen über ein ganzes Jahr hat sich sehr bewährt und Zeit für Imagination, Ausprobieren und Korrekturen gegeben. Das Zusammentreffen mit dem Team aus Cambridge von Richard Causton und dem Mentor Martón Illes führte zu einem sehr schönen Austausch.
"The work with the ensemble recherche gave me a leap forward in my composition. It gave me a chance to listen to the true potential of my music, handled with care and the utmost attention.“
"I had the great opportunity to work with Paul and Christian on my piece Insect Politics. They were very fun to work with, insightful and always willing to share their knowledge and experience, as well as all of the members of the Ensemble Recherche, it was without doubt an extremely fortunate experience that will remain with me throughout my career."

"I was very happy to discover that Ensemble Recherche was open to explore elements out of its expertise. All of the pieces were rehearsed and worked with the same dedication and care. I appreciate also that they took the time to get to know us personally, and gave honest feedback to each and every one of us."

"It was a great experience for me to work with the amazing musicians in my favourite ensemble. We all felt that they treated us students with deep respect. They always took us very seriously, and let us try out all our ideas. Thank you so much for letting me having this unique opportunity."
