The violinist Julia Fischer pays tribute to her musical godchild Matthias Well, the 2017 winner of the Fanny Mendelssohn Sponsorship Prize, in the preface to his GENUIN debut CD: She writes about his cheerfulness, his artistic seriousness, and his inquiring mind–all characteristics that breathe in Wells CD "Funeralissimo" from the very first moment to the very end. And it is a CD that tells the story of the cessation of breath, bringing together funeral music from all epochs and continents. Music that is always at the edge of the unspeakable, unplayable, incomprehensible—and therefore comes across as being so alive. A CD that goes beyond all norms in every respect—absolutely worth listening to!

"Matthias Well takes the listener on a journey through various countries and regions to explore the diversity of funeral music. He develops a genuine feeling for the various colours and rhythms, so that the listener doesn’t even have to follow the track list to realize in which part of the world Well is just playing."
