  • …a reborn Debussian refinement and languor with an occasional steely glint – a blend flautist Camilla Hoitenga achieves very naturally in her polished but also very vital performances (5-Stern CD-Kritik, L’aile du songe)
    BBC Magazine, December 2002
  • …a phenomal soloist…her spectrum of color ranges from full flute sound to modulating breath noises that refer to the aesthetic of the Japanese bamboo flute.
    Neue Zürcher Zeitung,  5.3.03
  • The performance is simply breathtaking. (CD-Kritik, L’aile du songe)
    Fanfare, May/June 2003
  • The “pièce de résistance”is without a doubt L’aile du songe…enormously difficult for the soloist, but well-mastered by Camilla Hoitenga. One admires the long breath and the intimate understanding that she brings to this work which is dedicated to her. (5-Stern Kritik der Saariaho CD L’aile du songe)

  • Camilla Hoitenga achieves a delightfully fragrant harmony between her instrument and the electronics. 
    BBC Magazine, Oktober 2001
  • …”Noa Noa”, porté par la flute virtuose et sensible de Camilla Hoitenga…
    Diapason, Oktober 2001
