"The complexity of the music by Corrado Pasquotti is a continuous adventure of knowledge, an inescapable deepening of an endless process, so that complexity has not to be intended as the vain effort of resolving matters, of providing the solution, of giving the final answer to an issue, as much as the awakening of further questions (it is the absolute lack of heuristic plausibility). The complexity must be understood as internal necessity and cultural challenge." (Renzo Cresti)
