This disc is from a pile of never opened, immaculately plastic-wrapped discs that I bought mostly in 2013 (I won't admit as to how many such piles I happen to have!) in this case. Sometimes I find unopened discs that I bought over a decade ago-and I must say it's actually a great feeling, especially with my financial state preventing the purchase of anything these days. I find myself excited as if I had just "pulled it from the racks" of a record store (remember those, ladies and gents??) or just received it via snail-mail :)
That said, I am actually listening to the opening work, "Nonet for Woodwinds and Strings" as I type.
I have never heard Kačinskas's music before and thus far I'm not sure what I think. Certainly it is well made. Hopefully more of a musical personality will emerge as the music continues..
I managed to find the booklet notes (pdf file) online and they seem quite lengthy and hopefully informative.
So, let's explore this obscure Lithuanian composer together, shall we? ;)
Enjoy I hope!
