The chamber opera One received great public and critical acclaim after its performances on the Berliner Festspiele and Festival d’Automne a Paris.

“Mastery of the deviation. With its absence of person psychology the piece spreads its aura over generations, since it reflects its secrets with the clarity of a mirror.”
— Der Tagespiegel, Sybill Mahlke, 12 Oct 2003

“It is also a true composition where all is determined starting from strict musical elements: rhythm, timbre and harmony. In service of a possible philosophical reflexion between Rimbaldism (I am another) and Buddhism.”
— Le Monde, Pierre Gervasoni, 20 Oct 2003
