descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The album is a collection of works of Arturas Bumsteinas inspired by Central European cultural landscape (soundscape). It includes radio play Wielka improwizacja commisioned by Bolt Records. Wielka improwizacja is based on the monologue from the 3rd part of the poetic drama Dziady (Forefather's Eve) by Adam Mickiewicz and the archival recording of its reading done by the Polish poet Miron Bialoszewski. Most parts of this composition were recorded in and around the site of the Basilian monastery in Vilnius, which in the 19th century was turned into a Russian Tsarist prison where both Adam Mickiewicz and a protagonist of his poetic drama were jailed."-Bolt
