Notes & Reviews:

"Alexander Knaifel is a Russian composer and cellist. Judging by this release and his previous one, also on ECM, he is a proponent of minimalism with religious overtones. He seems out to outdo both Arvo Part and Giya Kancheli in this department. All of this is so quiet and so slow-moving, yet soooo beautiful, that it makes me wonder what kind of person Knaifel must be to want such aggressive stillness around him." - Moore, ARG
