Arts Story  May 26, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...And the same goes for Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Schubert, and those other slackers in the Dead Composers Society. Fortunately, the Golden Hornet Project is around to pick up the slack, giving us regular infusions of new chamber music by local composers..."

Golden Hornet Project: Wolfgang-nam Style
'Amadeus' screening fundraiser for 'Mozart's Requiem Undead'
DAILY Arts  January 31, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...So you know how Tom Hulce is all sweaty and coughing and writing like mad to finish that awesome Requiem Mass before he keels over from the poison F. Murray Abraham gave him?

String Quartet Smackdown
Golden Hornet Project adds a touch of March Madness to the alt-classical scene
Arts Story  November 2, 2012, by Robert Faires
"...Looking for a little mid-autumn elimination tournament to tide you over until March Madness rolls around? Golden Hornet Project has some serious – okay, maybe not so serious – face-off action on tap in its String Quartet Smackdown, set for this coming Saturday at Scottish Rite Theater. Now, you won't see any cellists nailing three-pointers from midcourt or violinists taking it to the hole, but you'll hear hot, new melodies racing up and down the scale, charging rhythms, and all manner of compositional layups, hooks, and fast breaks as string quartets go toe-to-toe in this one-of-a-kind new music competition – and, best of all, the decision as to who wins any level of the contest is made by you...."

'Steinway to Hell'
Just the two leaders of the Golden Hornet Project and a pair of pianos
Arts Story  July 9, 2010, by Barry Pineo
"...Given the amount of work they've done in all corners of Austin's creative scene, Graham Reynolds and Peter Stopschinski probably need no introduction, but let's introduce them anyway: leaders of their own bands over the last decade (Golden Arm Trio and Brown Whörnet, respectively); composers for films, dances, theatre productions, and a plethora of musical ensembles; and performers who have recorded music together and separately. In February of this year, the two men, under the banner of their Golden Hornet Project, debuted their separate sixth symphonies in consecutive performances on the same program, which won the award for Outstanding Symphonic Performance from the Austin Critics Table..."

Golden Hornet Project
In Box
Music Review  October 25, 2002, by David Lynch
"...Golden Hornet ProjectCD-R Series Austin's Golden Hornet Project is actually a hybrid of other groups, namely Graham Reynolds from the Golden Arm Trio and Peter Stopschinski of Brown Whörnet. Hybrid is an excellent concept given that GHP has one foot in the halls of classical music and another firmly planted at the bar in a nightclub..."

At the Fusebox Festival, size matters, but that doesn't always mean 'big'
Arts Story  April 22, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...Some Fusebox projects achieve this by virtue of their settings.

Top 10 Dance/Classical Music Treasures of 2014
It was a year in which the personal shone through in dance and classical works small and large
Arts Story  December 31, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...1) MOZART REQUIEM UNDEAD (Golden Hornet Project/Texas Choral Consort/Texas Performing Arts/Fusebox Festival) An overflow crowd at the French Legation witnessed Wolfgang Amadeus' final work given spectacular new life by 33 musicians and 150 voices fusing Mozart with music by 10 contemporary composers. As wildly diverse as the pieces were – here ominous, there glorious, jazzy, rocking, discordant, delicate – they all seemed in dialogue with Mozart and with one another..."

The 10th Fusebox Festival gets off to an electric start with 'Mozart Requiem Undead'
Arts Story  April 11, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...That's the kind of mental image conjured by Mozart Requiem Undead, the "reanimation" of that choral masterwork with all the parts not written by Mozart himself before his death being completed by 10 contemporary composers and stitched together into a single work. The first full performance of this Frankensteinian mass – masterminded by Golden Hornet Project leaders Peter Stopschinski and Graham Reynolds – will kick off the 2014 Fusebox Festival, and it's precisely the kind of project that makes this hybrid arts festival such a thrilling part of Austin's cultural landscape..."
