A personal story about Iraida Yusupova.
Many years ago, I had run a record label (Falçata-Galia) which had a few releases. I was, and am, proud of every single one, though the label disintegrated thanks to many misunderstandings which the artists never had a part of. Iraida was one of the artists I desperately wanted to publish, and as it seems I’m drifting back into the trajectory of music again, it looks like a grand opportunity to work with one of my favorite modern composers.
This is a new work by her. Choral bliss.
