“Koh’s “reitario'” (the composer’s own neologism) opened the concert. This brief, four-minute work is quiet, still music which gradually builds in speed and complexity. The ponderous solemnity is enlivened by a flurry of grace notes — combined with Longendyke’s loving attention, it just managed to hold mine.”
