"To experience fully the music of Rudolf Komorous, one has only to listen attentively. The emotional language of the music is readily apparent and on the surface. And yet, the unpredictable juxtapositions of events, the turns of phrase, the surprising chords, and the unusual sounds delineate a landscape, which encompasses a wide range of feelings and sensitivities. Each piece exists as an original self-contained artifact in which are embedded associations and references drawn from visual imagery, people, events, or cultural practices from another time and place. The music is a product of its own time, while being timeless in its extensions to other worlds, whether historical or imaginary."
-- Owen Underhill, conductor

"Rudolf Komorous: Strange Sphere...These sensitive performances confirm what beautiful shimmering music it is: enigmatic but wise in its gentle re-direction of our expectations, witting in its acknowledgement of the human comedy."
-- Elissa Poole, CD review, The Globe and Mail, June 24, 2004
