sample the album:
"Galina Ustovolskaya's music belongs so utterley to a separate world that all historical echoes, including all those of Satie, can only be registered as afterthoughts. What is most astonishing about these works is how brute dissonance becomes nobly and intensely expressive, like rough-cut stone metamorphosed into shining marble pillars."-Alex Ross
