The first DRS 2 studio concert was distinguished by a musical vitality that did full justice to the natural essence of vocality. This was thanks to the playing of Andrea Kollé, a flautist of exceptional artistic talent. Kollé was able to demonstrate her technical superiority, her flexibility and her feel for nuance most impressively in the sonatine by Dutilleux.
Der Bund
This outstanding flautist dedicated a composition to Dediu - a "Pastorale cynique" for flute and piano - that was played for the first time at the Seelscheider Tage der Musik music festival. Her performance had many among the audience holding their breath.

Andrea Kollé had the audience spellbound with each of her performances on the flute.

Chamber music season at the Bernschen Musikgesellschaft: (Reinecke's "Undine" sonata) In this piece, glittering virtuosity is poeticised in the form of a fairytale motif: the sorrowful mermaid. With delicate feeling and finely honed technique, flautist Andrea Kollé and pianist Joanna Bochenska brought this beautiful aspect of the music magically to life, conveying both the melancholy and passion in the underlying theme. This gave their performance a satisfying sense of wholeness.
Der Bund
The superb flautist, Andrea Kollé, proved her absolute mastery of her art in a delightfully expressive and refined performance.
Berner Zeitung
Andrea Kollé gaf van Berio's razend moelijke Sequenza een uitzonderlijk fel bewogen en fantasierijke interpretatie ten beste. Kollé's intellectuele pathos kwam bijzonder goed tot zijn recht in het fluitconcert van Ibert, waarbij haar kristalheldere toon en verfijnde gevoel voor sfeerschildering diepe indruk maakten
NRC Handelsblad
Andrea Kollé liet zeer expressief en boeiend fluitspel horen. In het fluitconcert van Ibert toonde zij de ware podiumklasse en wist met name in het eerste deel niet alleen zelf goed staande te blijven, maar ook Het Brabants Orkest op constructieve wijze "op sleeptouw" te nehmen. Haar spel was open, helder, expressief en musikaal en tegelijkertijd op de zeer geboeid luisterende zaal gericht.
Eindhovens Dagblad
Andrea Kollé's subtle flute was flawless: full, soft, rounded and nuanced, remaining just as expressive in spirited pianissimo as in aggressive forte, and played with text-book musical phrasing.
Der Bund
The introduction and variations of "Ihr Blümlein alle" by Franz Schubert provided the flautist with the perfect showcase for her impressive talent.
Berner Zeitung
Andrea Kollé, flute, and Jean-Jacques Dünki, piano, traced out the musical facets of Bruno Maderna's "Honeyrêves" for flute and piano with great sensitivity.
