Description

LMIC 068

"Music born of the embrace and inspiration of a rich inner world.

Music created by an extremely sensitive and fragile giant.

Music that, when touched, asks many more questions of us than it provides answers. 

Music in which thought impulses flare up and glow upon coming into contact with each other. Then they cool down, allowing recovery and  inhaling of the tense atmosphere. But they never grow cold; nothing here is ever tepid. 

Music that addresses its time copiously and without compromise. The lightness of creation is not a priority, while the inner voice of truth is. 

Music about which there is so much one would wish to ask its composer..."
