Press reviews for world premiere: Ode to simplicity by Manfred Engelhardt Claude Debussy specified the title with children scenes for piano. „Children’s Corner“ is also the name of h Stefan Barcsay's new project. The guitarist presented it in the Leonhard Chapel. ….Barcsay is friends with Enjott Schneider (*1950), known mainly for his film scores. He was responsible for the world premiere of „Vom Kindsein“ (About being a child). Schneider connects the stations „enchanted / dazed / lost / in love ...grown up at last“ to create an artistically shaped arch. He – and his performer – plays virtuosically with impressions of dance, romance, and irony, when 'growing up' is indicated by march-like pacing after the dreamy phases.
