"In every way outstanding... a fantastic debut of a highly talented violinist"
- The Listener

"A profound new recording by violinist Yevgeny Kutik" - WQXR

"This recording heralds a serious, probing musician exploring some vital, if unfamiliar, twentieth-century violin repertoire, and, as such, presents a more-than-welcome addition to recent solo violin discography." - ArtsFuse

Yevgeny Kutik showed "An old-fashioned rhapsodic style, which was magnified by his rich, sweet tone." – The New York Times

The debut album from Russian-American violinist Yevgeny Kutik. Inspired by his family history and cultural heritage, Kutik and pianist Timothy Bozarth perform music created during some of the darkest periods in the lives of Alfred Schnittke, Joseph Achron, Dmitri Shostakovich and Arvo Pärt.
