  • "In The FiveRing Concerto, the composer introduced a lot of effects; the overall composition is very dynamic, sometimes even harsh and intense, as if attacking all the listener's senses. At the same time, it is a distinctly musical piece, whose inspiration - different winter sports - guides the listener through different creative processes and compositional ideas. It is another exceptional piece that introduced Canadian music and left it in the warmest memory of the Croatian audience."
