Acclaim for Alfeyev: De Profundis

"What is most striking about Alfeyev's music is its neo-Baroque styling, and how every measure conveys a profound religiosity. He writes in a lyrical, polyphonic style characterized by simplicity and an economy of thematic material. It sounds minimalistic at times, but is not without impressive, dramatic culminations of sound. His orchestration is vibrant and effective.... all of the music on the album is approachable and easy to enjoy. Top rate performances and the excellent sonics we've come to expect from Pentatone round out a truly original release."
