“Well on its way to the top is 'MAM.manufaktur für aktuelle musik', founded by musicians of the International Ensemble Modern Academy of 2010”. The group brings together first class musicians packing large doses of individual charm, among them Paul Hübner who could be last heard excelling in the part of Michael in Stockhausen’s “Donnerstag”. The Cologne-based conductor Susanne Blumenthal connects this individual members of this excellent instrumental ensemble, a collective that is precise in execution and that in every way astounds through their joy of performing, intensity, precision and programming: varied, surprising, wild, engaging. The Golden Palm for MAM!”
