Notes & Reviews:

Ovrutsky's debut CD with Berlin Classics features him making music with his sister Sonya, and as the title suggests, this is a very personal album. All of the pieces recorded here have a special meaning for him; they reflect places, memories, and special moods, which he discusses in the detailed booklet notes. The release allows us a musical look into his biography, which ranges far and wide, and we experience a sensitive artistic personality via glimpses of turning points in his life.
