Review - Resinenze Anzeiger 23 Feb 1932
Translation from German: Mr Richard Fuchs was a new man for us being an architect and a musician besides. But not an amateur in a bad sense. One could be pleasantly surprised by the high degree of musical essence shown in both of the works to be heard. That was indeed music of genuine feeling.
