    • 2008 March 1, James R. Oestreich, “Rhythm in Abundance, With a Spirit of Adventure”, New York Times:
      Regularity of rhythm came under assault from modernists in the last century, and its frequent absence accounts substantially for a sense of uprootedness and anxiety in their music that is more often attributed to atonal melody or harmony.
