Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new recording of poetic and spiritual works for soprano, female choir and orchestra by Bulgaria's leading composer. Spassov's work is characterized by a deep philosophical, meditative and even brooding strain that is very much connected to his Slavic sensibility and linked with the revival of the Orthodox traditions in Bulgaria and the world-wide reemergence of non-western and folk musics of many kinds.
"A beautifully written and performed program" - American Record Guide
