Martynov is a post WWII Russian composer who has written in 12 tone, and in a minimalistic style. He also has written religious works and has studied religious music, such as Renaissance music. From Wikipedia: "He became interested in the brand of minimalism developing in the Soviet Union in the late 1970s: a static, spiritually-inspired style without the shimmering pulse of American minimalism. The timeless quality of chants and the lack of a sense of bar lines in Renaissance polyphony entered into his version of minimalism."

Come In! is a work that combines romantic and minimalistic qualities. It is written for violin and ensemble -- to me it sounds like a small chamber orchestra. It is a series of pieces that on first listening sound almost the same -- after repeated listening one discerns small variations in each movement.

I have listened to this piece perhaps 30 times in the last few years and it never gets stale or old. Part of this is the sheer beauty of the melody, and the small variations keep the interest level up. There is another recording out there -- by Gidon Kremer -- but I think this one is slightly superior. It has a warmer sound than the Kremer and the players seem to play more expressively at times.

In sum, this is an unusual piece of music that is well worth listening to. It is relaxing and slightly haunting at times. Highly recommended.

I heard this CD via Internet radio -- it was so soothing, so perfect for being stuck at the office on a winter's day. I called the station to see what it was and bought it immediately.
