"Andreas Hörl, the young student of Kurt Moll, was a breathtaking Marke and the surprise of the evening. He does not copy his teacher but you can feel his sense of phrasing in every bar. He has a noble dark timbred bass and gave a moving characterization of the sad King Marke. I was astonished by his piani and the precise diction. I am sure he will make a career similar to his famous teacher Kurt Moll." (Debut as König Marke in Hamm/Der Neue Merker)
