about this recording:
These works, predominantly by Ukrainian composers, can surely be considered new territory for our ears, territory whose exploration - under the vivacious and competent guidance of Wladimir and Olga Astrachanzew - is an exciting and rewarding listening experience. And Alfred Schnittke's witty Moz-Art is played here in a nearly unsurpassable manner in which even the G-string's tuning peg plays a special role...
