"...the music of Mikuskovics Baum is a vivid musical journey in traditional European music." (Folk World Magazine)

" ...the focus is on the beauty of silence and on the magic of careful instrumentation ... This creates the pleasant feeling of a tender dream journey to leave the everyday life behind." (Sonic Seducer)

"...from Transylvanian ministrel songs over Irish traditionals to Slovak shepherd songs the duo creates a sensitive sound of various cultures." (Zillo Medieval)

"...harp, horn pipe, jaw harp, overtone singing ... and floating often two-part vocal work: Whether they are travelling with "King of the fairies & The Butterfly" to Ireland or they strike up a very solemn version of Matthias Claudius´ "Evening Song" Bernhard Mikuskovics and Georg Baum know how to make us forget the hectic life..."
