"There is much to admire in Katharina Rosenberger's music. She brings, always, a fresh or newly refreshed palette of instrumental sound. She creates structures that attract admiration for their improbable tensile strength - how does a piece like Modules here - hold together? But this is not what makes the music special. Rosenberger does not invite us to sit and admire, and then, like the old composer (who is a real person, even though he remains anonymous) leave the room unmoved. Instead, she invites us in. She involves the listener."-Brian Morton
