"...une etonnante berceuse russe..."
Jean-Yves Bertrand. Electronic Avantgarde.

"In among some rather poor pastiche-type chamber music there was a very good piece from Antony Svetlichny (Russia). This very young composer is one to look out for in future: ear and imagination came together in his aptly titled Exploration of Inner Space".
John McLachlan. Music and Beyond.
