5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning February 1, 2012
By anon
Format:Audio CD
A retrospective on the twentieth century Russian and Soviet composers, this album ranges from rage and despair to resignation and withdrawal, echoing the condition of the composers' society. This music is not meant to be easy. Even the traditionally tonal Achron pieces are achingly sad, and in the Arvo Part, the music has turned so far inward that the outside world is no longer heard. Why do we listen to such music? Why do we watch Schindler's List? Because these works mean something and demand our attention. Because they bring back to life a world that tested the human spirit to the breaking point. Because they matter. Kutik and Bozarth seem to be in their element with this music, and play it with complete conviction and instrumental command. The sound quality is generally very good; Kutik plays with a glowing sound on the G string and a glittering upper range. I will have to keep an eye out for these two in the future. Overall, a stunning CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome debut album January 31, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Excellent playing by Yvgeney Kutik and Timothy Bozarth. The repertoire on the album is intensely emotional. Rarely do you hear the Shostakovich and Schnittke played with so much passion and fire. This is an auspicious debut. Keep your eyes and ears open for them!
