Brigitta Weber, SWR Head of Editorial Office of REPORT MAINZ Domestic Department
[…]Our instructions to Tobias Bösel and Siegfried Rolletter were very “simple”. The music for REPORT MAINZ should be strong and powerful, the same as our investigative journalists. It should have the drive and also be harsh in there impression and should fit into the new design of REPORT MAINZ. The question was how could be our words translated into music? How could that problem be solved? This challenge was excellent solved by the team Bösel and Rolletter. This is exactly the music which we wanted. It is a shame that the music finishes always so quickly with in introduction. Many thanks for your professional work. […]
Fritz Frey SWR Editor in Chief TV, Presenter of REPORT MAINZ
[…]a strong brand like REPORT MAINZ needs a strong music. The signature tune of our ARD political program is now a strong music. You have composed a music which will be recognized and stay in one’s mind. When we have planned this year the relaunch of REPORT MAINZ broadcasting it was obvious that the basic melody which you composed as well will stay. Very often I am buzzing the sound.
The trademarks of REPORT MAINZ are the fox and the music. When the fox creeps over the screen he represents our investigative journalists, he is on track to bring the light up. It is brilliant how you translated our journalistic attitude into the music. I will thank to you both for this great performance. I am looking forward for further projects with you, either in film reports or sound designs. You are well-known as two musicians who understand the editors and journalists […]

Renate Beyer, ZDF-Author Renate Beyer about the film „Abraham – Patriarch of humanity“
[…]I found, the music to Abraham was really succsessful! Partly grandiose cinema music, partly like an arabic road-movie, a bit desert, aspiration, romantic, also spirituality, religiousness and a great dramatic art – the devotement of Isaak is really teriffic! Many thanks for this excellent work![…]

[…]“I compliment you on your CD “Film Music Highlights/ Volume 2”. I am glad to hear that the response of the audience concerning the travel reports and documentaries on Tuesdays is so great that a CD with the music could be released.
The result can be listened to very nicely. I can only agree to Mr. Zahn’s quote to be able to “hear the songs of the Taiga and the dreaminess of untouched nature” – congratulations to this wonderful CD!“

You have looked at the people,
You paid attention to the landscape,
You have opened your senses for the atmosphere,
you have grasped the moment,
the tension and the quiet of the moment,
the life situation, the light, the season, the country.
Fortunately you have not composed Chinese music. Thank you.“
