CD-review by Frank von Niederhäusern, Kulturtipp (CH) April 2016

«...Theiler's exchange with bassist Luca Sisera and drummer Lukas Mantel is so intense, that the key word "collective” takes on a new meaning. The three musicians achieve in dance, which they summon in the album title, an amazing emotional density that is contagious.»

CD-review by Christoph Wagner, WOZ (CH), April 2016

«...Theiler's Trio is not just another addition to the current piano trio boom. Rather, the group gives an idea of the range of opportunities that still exist in this seemingly long since maxed out format.»

«...Theiler's compositions have the formal elegance of Herbie Hancock's, as well as more funk and grit than European jazzers often possess.»

Concert review by York Schaefer, independent music journalist (DE), JazzAhead Bremen, March 2016

Yves Theiler Trio live at JazzAhead Bremen Clubnight 2016

«...Yves Theiler hält in seinen Stücken die Balance zwischen Kraft und Sensibilität, minimalistischem Ansatz und Komplexität, Improvisation und Komposition. Vor allem aber verbindet der junge Schweizer Pianist Virtuosität und nuancenreiche Technik mit emotionaler Tiefe.»

CD review by Ueli Bernays, NZZ Neue Zürcher Zeitung (CH), Mai 2012

«...der 24-jährige Zürcher Pianist hat sich in den letzten Jahren einen Namen als aufstrebendes Talent gemacht. Das Dispositiv seiner Begabung ist durch Virtuosität, einen analytischen, offenen Geist und impulsive Musikalität geprägt. Kein Wunder, fühlt sich Theiler in jenen Zonen des Jazz besonders wohl, wo Grenzen gesprengt, Möglichkeiten erweitert und neue Räume erschlossen werden.»

The singer and composer Efrat Alony (ISR) writes about the debut album «Out Of The Box»:

«Yves Theiler has it all - a beautiful sound, an immaculate time and technic, he is a virtuoso- in his melodic lines as well as in his fresh and daring harmonic world. His music seems to posses a depth and yet a lightness- a rare quality!  but what strikes me the most in this wonderful debut CD is Theiler's courage to think and play outside the box- The courage to stride on paths you can not be quite sure where they'll take you.  to play a line, and just when it starts to get comfortable- to break into something else- keeping the listener always on his feet.
it's full of drive and excitement, it's daring and beautiful, it's music!»

Concert Review, Jazz'n'more (CH), by Christian Rentsch

Yves Theiler solo live at Festival da Jazz St. Moritz 

«...Da ist ein junges Talent ganz gross im Kommen,dass sich weit ab vom pianistischen Mainstreamund ohne wohlfeile Anleihen bei Popsongs, Rock und World einen unverkennbar eigenen Weg sucht.Virtuosität, rasante Schnellfingerei scheinen ihn dabei wenig zu interessieren, dafür umso mehr das höchst raffiniert ineinander verschränkte Spiel der melodischen Linien und der fein ausdifferenzierten, exquisiten Voicings der  linken  Hand,  das  immer wieder an die besten Jahre von Bill Evans, dem grössten Lyriker des Pianojazz denken lässt. Eine introvertierte, oft melancholisch grundierte, beseelte Musik von zarter Schönheit.»
