‘Michele Rusconi’s music is mercurial, sophisticated and amusing without ever lacking in seriousness. It entertains as it discovers. The new sounds and effects that she gets from her choice of instruments always serve a narrative that is deeply and pleasurably absorbing. Her music insists on the excitement of contemporary music. By challenging the ear with new sounds and patterns Rusconi reveals new realms and triggers new associations. It is a kind of music that enlivens the mind and enriches experience. It abounds in delight.’
