Now this is an exciting release.  For me I only wish they could have releases the new recordings singly since I already have 4, 5, and 7, so acquisition of the new release will involve a fair bit of duplicatiom for me.  But it will be worth it.

With the passing of Rautavaara Kalnins is the most likely candidate for the title of "Favourite Living Composer".

Oh wait, that could be Silvestrov instead/as well...

But at any rate, I really enjoy Kalnins music.

I'd go Silvestrov!
