Notes & Reviews:

"...To encounter Scelsi...is to recapture some sense of the sublime--nowadays a rare sense indeed...His music is indescribable: microtonal, arrhythmic, elemental, mysterious, slow-moving, not of our world...Most imposing is 'Anahit'...a constant and pseudo-electronic flux...These Viennese performers sound as though they are making the music as they go along, and Kairos's recording job is perfect--with the right ambience for this composer's mysteries." -Ashby, ARG
