"Over almost a half-century, Korte has carved out a personal, non-dogmatic body of work which both reflects the trends of the period and places his own personal stamp on them. His career, with its devotion to individual expression and a refusal to accede to any single "ism", is a reminder that those who look only to the traditional centers of musical activity do so at their peril, for they can miss art of genuine substance in the process."-Robert Carl*
"[his music is composed in] an attractively scientific manner, ranging from infrared, so to speak, his archaically impressed works through the mandatory neo-Baroque essays to the ultraviolet refraction of mathematical conceits, abstractions, serialism, and electronics."
-Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians
*Robert Carl is a composer, critic and chair of the composition department at the Hartt School of Music.
