Stockausen's Carre at Ruhrtriennale 2016

Mark Sved at the LA Times, Sept 17 2016

The audience sat in the middle of a gigantic industrial site transformed into a spectacular arts space for the Ruhrtriennale 15 years ago. The Bochum Symphony and ChorWerk Ruhr were divided into four ensembles and situated on platforms in the room’s four corners and amplified. Each had an excellent conductor

Unter den vier Dirigenten Rupert Huber, Florian Helgath, Matilda Hofman und Michael Alber meisterten die Bochumer Symphoniker und das ChorWerk Ruhr engagiert, mit aller gebotenen Präzision und Detailtreue, ihre ungewöhnliche Aufgabe als mal berserkerhaft, mal subtil arbeitende Klangskulpteure.

Kurt Rhode's Death with Interruptions

San Francisco Gate 2015

For me, the most transfixing part of the evening (which began with a thematically apt excerpt from Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” Quartet) was the elaborate and eloquent solo ballet with which conductor Matilda Hofman guided the proceedings. To watch her marshal the flow of the performance — now crisp and precise, now fluid and polyrhythmic — was to believe that somehow this might all make musical sense.

The instrumentalists from the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, where Rohde is "composer/violist/artistic advisor" were integral members of the piece and played the complex music under the young conductor Matilda Hofman splendidly.
