Euphonium player Fabian Bloch’s GENUIN release begins with a "wham!"—and holds the listener in its grip for a full hour. Jazz, classical music, pop, funk, and folk music are all poured into this electrifying musical mixture as the up-and-coming star opens up completely new repertoire for his instrument. It alternately grooves, gets intense, or is simply beautifully played. Offering brass with class, Bloch has commissioned seven works for himself and his two comrades Michael Meinen and François Killian. Among the composers are illustrious names like Daniel Schnyder and Jukka Linkola. Grand and sparkling enjoyment!

"Wer bislang den »Draht« zum Eufonium noch nicht gefunden haben sollte, für den ist Fabian Blochs Album Spot on! jedenfalls ein ganz heißer Tipp!"
Review by Helmut Peters in Brawoo, May 2020

Brass Band World
"Fabian Bloch has indisputably proved the potential of the euphonium in the 'jazz trio' setting through an outstanding level of performance and repertoire, which fuses traditional forms with a plethora of styles. Combined with excellent recording and understated, yet informative presentation, this innovative disc will have a lasting appeal for audiences, including those far beyond the brass band sphere."
Review by Thomas Dunne in the British magazine Brass Band World

"Das Euphonium, ein tiefes Blechblasinstrument, dessen Name vom griechischen Wort für ‘wohlklingend’ abgeleitet wurde, kommt nicht besonders viel in der Orchesterliteratur vor, aber das im Klang dem der Tuba nahekommende Instrument wird zunehmend solistisch eingesetzt …Über das ganze Programm hinweg zeigt Fabian Bloch seine instrumentale Meisterschaft in Verbindung mit musikalischer Inspiration. Die Kontrolle von Texturen und Klangfarben sind bemerkenswert … Der aufgenommene Ton trägt zum guten Eindruck dieser CD bei, die mit ihrem abwechslungsreichen Programm ein guter Fürsprecher für das Instrument Euphonium ist."

Spot on! is nominated as Solo CD of the Year!
"Listening to the latest CD from euphonium player Fabian Bloch is like sitting down in the living room of a Corbusier inspired Swiss architect. There is a cool minimalist detachment about everything that surrounds you - expertly engineered form and functionality designed by a very specific musical intellect. ... The technique on show is impressive, but it’s not wantonly displayed to simply make sterile statements of brilliance."
