Press reviews for world premiere: An unusual "pre-premiere" performance took place at the 1981 carnival concert at the Munich Academy of Music in the large concert hall: Friedemann Winklhofer and Enjott Schneider played Bach's Toccata in D minor backwards in a slapstick-show while wearing pajamas - it was the birth of ATACCOT!
