“…Rose showed a keen understanding of Kurtág’s personal idiom, with each movement given a distinct and focused effect.  She also dug into the music with an intensity that mirrors this composer’s fascination with the physical possibilities of instruments and their players.”
--Benjamin Frandzel,  San Francisco Classical Voice 3/17/03

“….Pianist Karen Rosenak performed both of these challenging works  [Incises(1994) and Notations (1945)] with splendid intensity meeting their virtuosic demands, and infusing the music with expressive insight.”
--Jules Langert, San Francisco Classical Voice 12/09/02

“…Hi Kyung Kim’s septet At the Edge of the Ocean is a major work.  Rich in musical ideas, and with a full instrumentation it’s a work of deep textures.” “…Mary Chun conducted concisely, with particularity.” “[Thalia} Moore playing with focus and keenly-directed phrasing, with [Karen] Rosenak in closest ensemble, gave it [Espace I] an absorbing performance.”
