Feuerspiegel hits a vein in Christensen’s production, where the fascination of both fire and mirrors is transformed into sound: Works like Orfiske ildklipper, Ilddråber, Winterfeuer and De khazariske spejle. (Orphic Firerocks, Fire Drops, Winterfeuer, and Khazarian Mirrors)
The sound-mirror is very obvious in the beginning of the work, where the mirroring is co complete that it is impossible to hear what is recorder and what is accordion – something that creates the illusion of a totally third instrument.

The recorder Magazin skrev:
Feuerspiegel … is scored the for recorder and accordion … The two instruments flicker together often in rhythmic unisons, and the composer revels in the play of glassy colors between the instruments. The tonal references are beguiling – common chords abound but always employed contextually with a strange beauty. Recorder chords and over-blowing are used with discretion and (they never sound gratuitously ugly, as so often can be the case), and the accordion has a remarkable solo interlude with shakes and ricochets of the bellow.

… “Feuerspiegel”, en næsten kosmisk duet med Bjarke Mogensen. Han får med sin akkordeon de to “luft-bårne” instrumenter til at smelte lydligt næsten helt sammen. Fascinerende
