Notes and Editorial Reviews

The first release of contemporary music from Albania, introducing the works of Aleksander Pe?i, the country's most prominent composer. Recorded by Labor Records in Tirana, the capital, and featuring Albanian musicians exclusively, this release marks the first ever recording of new music in Albania by a foreign company. A landmark document in the history of this small Balkan nation and the music world at large. "Albanian Lament" is the first of two albums focussing on Pe?i's wide ranging repertory of chamber music coupled with the composer's hauntingly beautiful music for film.
