KUNIKO - cantus - American Record Guide

Glenn Gould famously quipped that Hindemith's motto might well have been 'I vibrate, therefore I am'. I'd say Pärt's would have to be 'I resonate, therefore I am'; he beats nearly all other composers for resonance hands down. This exquisite-sounding program offers compelling transcriptions of his 'Für Alina' as well as the 'Cantus' and the unforgettable 'Fratres'. Sometimes the sounds suggest some electronic processing (a high, undulating sheen in the drone for Fratres, in particular), but they only enhance the music's timbral beauty.
