John Corigliano: "Gity Razaz is a unique composer. Her Middle-Eastern roots have merged with her Western sensibilities to produce music that is both original and startling. She is on her way to becoming a major force in contemporary music."

 

 San Diego Union Tribune: "The second half opened with remarkable music by Iranian composer Gity Razaz. 'In the Midst of Flux' is the work of a master, albeit a young one. [...] Full of gorgeous color, the piece shimmers with longing and uncertainty until a final bell-like thunderclap of sound suspends both time and memory. Breathtaking."

   

 New York Times: "'The Metamorphosis of Narcissus,' by Gity Razaz, an Iranian composer, was a world apart: a narcotic mix of dreamy French horn and clarinet calls, limpid Impressionist timbres and electronically induced expanse. Ms. Razaz’s music was ravishing and engulfing throughout..."

 

 Blogcritics: “Tonally and lyrically inventive, pleasingly melodic, emotional but firmly in control of its passions.”
