Brevitas CD

The Latin word Brevitas stands for brevity, shortness, conciseness. It truly encompasses the essence of my musical searchings – the tight, clear and coherent structure laid under a meaningful and expressive idea. Numerous composers have turned towards the short form but their attempts are dramatically different due to both the natural variety of styles and musical language, and in a purely essential sense – each piece’s nucleus springs from the bright individuality of the author. In this new CD, I have included 12 of my favourite works, unified by the principle of length – each piece lasts no more than a few minutes. However, quantity is no measure for quality – they are all undisputedly intensely emotional works, rich in imagination and impressive in craftsmanship.
