 Central European Gem April 3, 2012 By Anthony G. (valley stream, NY) See All My Reviews "This music, and this composer, "come out of nowhere" so to speak. A recent recital group in New York City played a piece by this composer, perhaps, with the intention of reviving his music. I could not attend, but decided to purchase a CD of Vorisek's music.Splendid, powerful, very moving compositions with unexpected modulations and haunting melodies. I hope that the New York performance, and, music lovers as I am, can ignite long overdue interest in Vorisek and his work. This is neither second rate composing nor second rate performing."
