Valentin Silvestrov…Touching the Memory…

Silvestrov is considered one of the originators of the Kiev avant-garde, and his works were not performed in 1960’s/70’s Soviet Union. He later renounced this style of composition, believing that there is no new music, just music from memories of older music. These string orchestra pieces (sometimes the orchestra is so quiet!) are contemporary, lyrical and exquisite! Play!
