“Martinaitytė wows with new works for string orchestra. This is extraordinary music with a harmonic language all her own: powerful, minimal while immense and unutterably beautiful.” Limelight Magazine
"Her scores similarly appeal to something beyond the immediately cerebral, creating vast shimmering soundscapes that lead the mind somewhere dreamlike and seem to speak directly to the body’s senses in arresting and unexpected ways…. this excellent disc offers a welcome introduction to Martinaitytė’s compelling and transporting music." BBC Music Magazine
