Reviews
The extraordinarily focused ensemble work 'Ró' offers a microscopic view of the composer’s processes…
Andrew Mellor, Gramophone,01/01/2019
...as perfect a bit of sustained delicacy as any 11 minutes of music one could ever want to hear...
Nancy Malitz, Classical Voice North America,25/05/2018
Artfully scored... the score barely rises above a whisper, centering on hushed sustaining pitches and rarefied concentration with striking effects (like crunching paper) that add to the eerie yet strangely inviting atmosphere
Lawrence Johnson, Chicago Classical Review,23/05/2018
Ro means serenity, and that was achieved beautifully over an eventful 10-minute span by way of exquisite modal harmonies.
James R. Oestreichjan, New York Times,11/01/2018
At the point of the spear of contemporary music, her taste for low dynamics and organic growth produces a captivating beauty for all ears. ... created a sense of stature free from historical burdens.
George Grella, New York Classical Review,09/01/2018
