In his solorezital BÃ¼hler combines improvisations and citations of his own compositions. As a material there can be found melodic features, multiphonics and minimalistic sounds that are made by circular breathing. There are emerging open and strong moods while Hermann BÃ¼hler starts to explore the sound features of the alto. The music contains breath-taking fireworks as well as removed blooming gardens.
Ã¢Â€ÂžJazz or not Jazz - that could be the question. You don't need an answer, being exposed to so much expressivity and beauty."
Neue ZÃ¼rcher Zeitung 1995
Ã¢Â€ÂžIn his recital BÃ¼hler played simple melodic forms that were treated in a sensitiv and transparent way. Then he developed the melodies into polytonal patterns. BÃ¼hler's playing contains in the same time simplicity and virtuosity. This combination brings a cultivated, unpretentious air to a superb musical experience."
