“Although adept at creating peaceful musical environments that encourage feelings of wellbeing and personal contentment, Kollwitz clearly manages to avoid falling into predictable cliché “new age” traps, nor could his thoughtful compositions ever be relegated to mere background music. Rather, Kollwitz’s style is expressively unselfconscious, yet down-to-earth and refreshingly humble in approach.” – Candice Michelle, Aural Awakenings

“It takes a lot these days to stand out and do something new. But some artists are creative and bold enough to do something different. One such artist is Michael Kollwitz. He plays the Chapman Stick, which gives his music a wonderful and unique sound. Kollwitz is now ready with the third installment in his highly successful Serenity series. It is the best in the series so far, and a landmark release in recent New Age music.” – BT Fasmer, NewAgeMusic.guide

“Entering into the mystically melodic, soul transporting musical world of Michael Kollwitz via his exquisite new collection Serenity III: More Peaceful Music on the Chapman Stick, the feeling is one of a cool and calm euphoria. While the lush and compelling compositions he plays on the unique stringed instrument are designed for gentle reflection and meditation, these chill vibes are balanced by the extreme joy of discovery of a wonderful artist whose music I wish I had been introduced to much sooner.” Jonathan Widran – The JW Vibe.com
