/../ Music for symphony orchestra The Green Vision spoke itself: in a living, pictorial and contrast full process, in which at times hissed /../ Wind-machine, howled siren and from the speaking – trumpet came a cough exactly like in the fairy-tale, where it came through radio from the dusty city. /../ Extremely good use of program music! From the concert program’s historical and contemporary authorities The Green Vision by I. Riše left a most bright impression. It is a valuable input to Latvian music, because it stays out from our typical lyricism or pathetic.
Inese Lūsiņa, musicologist, Diena, 15.10.2003.
Music by Indra Riše is like a whirlpool, where you plunge in to a wild, even out of control, but also great organized stream…
Ligita Sneibe, organist, Neatkarīgā Avīze, 24.08.2001.
While listening to your music I was very happy, it did an enormous impact on me, one of the strongest in the whole cycle of women composers (just as did LONH by Kaija Saariaho).
Donata Premeru, musicologist, radio-editor, Belgrad, 19.06.2002. letter
A certain Nordic angularity, conspicuous inspiration from nature and laconic straightforwardness are however still characteristics features which must be said to come from her Latvian background. She herself strongly feels a tension between a modernist, international orientation and her roots in Latvia’s culture and nature.
