Notes & Reviews:

Mirror is the first ECM New Series album from Tõnu Kõrvits (born 1969), who joins a distinguished line of composers from Estonia who have recorded for the label, the list including Pärt, Eller, Tormis, Tüür and Tulve. Kõrvitz has been influenced by folk song and archaic musical tradition, and these find their echo in the refined and texturally-rich spectrum of his own, often labyrinthine, pieces. Anja Lechner lends her rich cello sound to three of the compositions featured here.

The Guardian, 7th April 2016
Kaljuste and his Tallinn players are well versed in evoking picturesque, moody expanses, and in Labyrinths the pale strings circle and shift in and out of focus, all very icy and, at times, quite pretty.
