The Birmingham Times, Review of Uneasy Dreams by Esther Callens (July, 2011)

Composer/flutist Christian Artmann is quite daring. I say this because his new release, which is distinctively titled Uneasy Dreams, is a delightful fusion of various genres of music and sounds. From the very first notes of “Foreboding,” which is the first track, Artmann tweaks listeners and captivates them with his exceptional sounds. It is mesmerizing. Artmann’s arrangements are natural aesthetics. They are not rehearsed representations. Listen to “On A Sentimental Flute” to verify this point. Other favorites are “Aria De Opereta”, “Next Steps” and “Uneasy Dreams.” Uneasy Dreams – an extraordinary improv.
