«"He has to sing, so we finally understand what that means, not just for him, but for all the talk and movies is not enough, so he stands there, alone next to a piano, which would have to be tuned again The acoustics of the room are horrible, but Zuma's voice fills it, clear and powerful, he draws a melody, illuminates objective beauty from all sides, without ever slip into the mere feeling ". Niklaus Hablutzel»

«"Er muss singen, damit wir endlich verstehen, was das heißt, nicht nur für ihn, sondern überhaupt. Das ganze Gerede und Gefilme reicht dazu nicht aus. So steht er da, alleine neben einem Klavier, das mal wieder gestimmt werden müsste. Die Akustik des Raumes ist grauenhaft, aber Zumas Stimme füllt ihn aus, klar und kräftig zeichnet sie eine Melodie, beleuchtet ihre objektive Schönheit von allen Seiten, ohne jemals ins bloße Gefühl abzugleiten". Niklaus Hablützel»
