With the engagement of the guest soprano Maren Schwier [...] a very lucky choice had been made: the singer, who is particularly experienced in the field of new music, shone with an easily understandable, extremely flexible and nuanced voice and conveyed the sometimes far-reaching declamations of her complaint fulfilled parts very well and appropriately dramatic.

Maren Schwier, trained in Frankfurt and quickly recognized in the region as a new voice between the classical operatic repertoire and the most demanding new music, is truly a soprano who is blessed with a common throat, who even with the bizarre zigzag melos of Michael Sell is not faced with insurmountable problems.

Maren Schwier could hardly have presented herself in a more versatile manner, as she brilliantly interpreted a breakneck passage of the title character from Alban Berg's “Lulu” and seductively the Vilja song from “The Merry Widow” by the operetta writer Franz Léhar.

Difficult seemed to mobilize all possible tones and loud chants. She moved vocally from the very top to the very bottom, sometimes breathed or whispered, sometimes in spoken chanting and surprised with tones that are probably not to be found in any opera literature. [...] In the absence of a duet partner, Schwier took over both voices and, with her grandiose soprano voice, managed the "descent" to the bass, whereby she also owed nothing in terms of facial expressions and gestures. [...] There was cheering applause in the ballroom for the "musical expansion of consciousness".
