“There was never a dull moment in this performance of serious classical music as everyone experienced Gabor's funny movements, simple and amusing magic tricks, and superb performance skills.”
Hong Kong Economic Times, 01/12/2022
“Vosteen has a remarkable gift for timing and situational comedy; with the confidence and acrobatic grace of a mime he masterfully plays with the audience's expectations, seducing them with his beguiling charm.”
“Gabor Vosteen, who has long since won the hearts of more than a thousand listeners, was able to demonstrate his stupendous ability in a recorder concerto by Georg Philipp Telemann. Vosteen's artistry as outlined in the concert programme was surpassed by reality. An incredibly light and frothy game of natural comedic talent.”
“Vosteen is the Pied Piper of Hamelin among the woodwinds: one whistle, and everything succumbs to his flute – seduced and captivated by his pantomimic charm, his musical virtuosity from baroque to rock, his crazy costumes and, yes – even the globs of fun in uninhibited nonsense.”
"With instruments coming out of his mouth and nose simultaneously, he amazed us with perfectly balanced chords and even a section from Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, played both musically and flawlessly"
Who would have ever thought the words ‘musical genius’ and ‘recorder’
could be uttered in one sentence? Fluteman manages to combine the
absurdity of playing one of the most simple of musical instruments - the
with jaw-dropping skill, turning it
into a hilarious one-man show with all of the classical hits, and more.
Be prepared to watch a master at work, and at the same time, laugh your
