Notes & Reviews:

Mika Vayrynen writes: "There is no time in music. To me, they are all alive, the concert pianist Grigory Sokolov once said in an interview, in speaking of music and its performers. I find myself agreeing with him about the timelessness of music. Music composed centuries ago is still as vibrant as if it were born today. Even though composers have been tied to the aesthetics, society and phenomena of their own era, their music has lived on. Music is like an immortal traveler who encounters life and death on his long journey. The works on this disc are so grouped that their births are separated by more than 200 years. Because music is timeless, the works and their composers communicate in a way that is entirely natural, mutually understanding and respectful. I hope you will sense this in listening to this CD."
