«In a courageous way, his composition SCHERZO combines folkmusic roots with compositional techniques from the classic scene of the 20th century. Whereby the easiness and, from time to time, the daring courage, always keeps freshness within the piece. The portrait includes also some arranged pieces in traditional forms, with whom Marcel Oetiker was known both as a performer and as a composer.» (Neue Urner Zeitung)

«Complex, free, and never corny in terms of traditions.» (TTB)
