"It is the great achievement of Martin Wassermair to have identified a historical place in which continuity and rupture, complexity and simplicity in the process of formation and deformation are clearly manifested.
Performances of ' Fidelio' did not only take place at such central reference points of Austrian self-discovery as in the years 1955 and 1945. Through Beethoven, the social-democratic workers' movement connected with the bourgeois nation - but at that time the German nation, and Beethoven is also recognizable as a reference point for the Austro-Fascist dictatorship , the idea of freedom in this opera was also used by the Nazi regime as a festival motif, as shown by the performances in Vienna in 1938 and in occupied Slovenian Styria in 1941.
Martin Wassermair systematically searched for sources and literature, found them, interpreted them and presented them in one language mediated, beyond helpless moralizing or ironic distancing, historical phenomena from made clear, the tradition of which appears only partially broken to this day."
