    Crystal Records:
Dream Catcher for solo viola is a burst of expressive ideas. Rodland shapes the piece with vibrant fluency, tracing its surprising flights as if they were cogent ideas popping into her head.
Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone,01/06/2016
The title (Dream Catcher) is carefully chosen; although the music is rigorously structured, the composer likes it to imply a “captured improvisation”, as she puts it. The performance here is by the solo viola version dedicatee and is heard in a most eloquent account. Rodland does indeed find the intended spontaneity; yet the fact that the work extends over nine minutes and yet is so eminently satisfying a musical experience underlines the musico-organizational activities behind it all.
