Reviews

"[Olga Viktorova's]'Major Circle' for string orchestra gets us to a light, lyrical world full of gentle "celestial" colors. This transparent, soaring music sounds like echoes of distant worlds. Listening to it, I feel our unity with nature, with space."

N.Ivanchuk, Composers of Yekaterinburg (1998)
