"A highlight was the aria of the tenor Martin Vanberg in the role of verita, who stretched the eagle's wings over the Jesus child to the very light sounds of the psaltery by Margit Uebellacker."

(Simon Bordier, Basel, December 2016)

 

" ... many moments of real musical sensitivity. Margit Übellacker's deft touch on the psaltery (an ancient form of dulcimer) was a delight."

(Ivan Hewett, London, Telegraph, Wigmore Hall Review, Oct. 2013)

 

"Virtuos swirls the soloist with her hammers over the strings, charms with richly graduated dynamics and correspondingly differentiated design power ..." (Göttingen Tageblatt, may 2013)

 

"...Margit Ubellacker, leading exponent of the psaltery..."

(Harriet Cunningham, Sydney Morning Herald, 13.9.2010)

 

"Margit Übellacker let the hammers sway so skilfully over the strings of the fortepiano’s forerunner that she achieved unexpected emotional depth – not least through the suggestion of polyphony."

(Ute van der Sanden, Mitteldeutsche Zeitung Halle, 29.9.2007)

 

"The precision with which Margit Übellacker lets her hammers dance across the strings is fascinating and the way she exploits the dynamic possibilities of her instrument is an extraordinary experience. ... And in combination with the chest organ it is something really special."

(Martina Holbein, Schwarzwälder Bote, 13.8.2007)

 

"Margit Übellacker ... sculpted Bach’s slow movements with much feeling and variety, with almost febrile changes of dynamic contrasts, constantly swelling and diminishing, creating an expressive sound world ... ."

(Susanne Eckstein, Pfullinger Stadtanzeiger, 24.7.2006)

 

"Übellacker is a true virtuoso“
