Press Quotes

"Rautavaara's characteristic sound-worlds – by turns mystical, meditative, rhapsodic – are a fitting complement to Khayyám's lyric quatrains which, rather than delineating a narrative, present the profound feelings and philosophical reflections of the poet on subjects such as religion, lvoe and death."
