  • The chemistry works, the pieces of Eisenga on this cd are strong. Catching pieces that can be listened to as extended songs - such as the melancholic Passacaglia or the jumpy, exciting Kick – that, even after repeated listening, remain firmly intact.
    Klassieke Zaken / Paul Jansen
  • The music of Eisenga lies in between the repetition-techniques and use of intervals of Michael Nyman and Philip Glass, interlarded with elements of popmusic. The pieces have been written stylistically with a lot of imagination and are, as a result, both interesting and inviting.
    Opus Klassiek / Aart van der Wal
  • Strong compositions, perfectly performed, which make you long for more.
    Platomania / Wil Zenhorst
  • “Motion, a splendid example of the composer's engaging style and PADS' high-energy attack...." “Kick, a ravishing, sixteen-minute travelogue..." "No better argument for the superior calibre of his music is needed than Passacaglia......”
