by Professional Reviews Date Added: Jan 09, 2005
"The strength of the piece lies in its highly - and unapologetically - emotional content, dispensed artfully with the utmost thematic discretion. The strength of the playing lies in Natalia Khoma's sense of drama and attention to timbre… Hearing nearly 73 minutes of brooding Slavic ruminations on death … may not inspire much toe-tapping, but Baley does arrive at an effective catharsis. The vocal line, whose wordless hum soon blooms into a text reconciling itself to human morality, descends on the earthiness of the cello like a message from above. In delivering it, soprano Olga Pasichnyk floats like an angel.

Ken Smith, GRAMOPHONE, March 2003
