Vladimir Martynov - Night In Galicia (Long Arms, 2000)

Vladimir Martynov - A-A-A O-O-O Eh-Eh-Eh OO-OO-OO

The remaining songs on Night In Galicia alternate between edgy orchestral string drones and majestic vocal work that brings me to the same place as Yoshi Wada's Lament For The Rise & Fall Of The Elephantine Crocodile. The moods may be dissimilar but the technique and approach are very much alike. And considering how highly I regard Lament, that is one honorable compliment.

Full review on diskant.
