...Stephan Micus plays some fifty wind, plucked, string and percussion instruments, ranging from the shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) and the bagana (Ethiopian lyre) to the dilruba (Indian bowed instrument) and the bodhran (Irish drum). Many of his instruments, most originating from Asia and Africa, represent age-old music traditions that are in danger of dying out. Viewed in this light, Micus' compositional oeuvre can be regarded as the Noah’s Ark of sound
...His has lost none of its innocence, but has gained much in terms of wisdom. His solitary lifestyle and tendency to work alone have enabled him to develop his own very distinctive sound, averse to any whims of fashion. …Stephan Micus deserves pride of place among contemporary composers, a laurel wreath for his passion for experimentation and a deep bow for his solo craftsmanship. And his music should be placed in a variety of categories: classical, world and New Age. …Music lovers in Germany, the UK and the US reached this conclusion long ago.
