Other Points of Interest and Links
1. The CD liner notes consist of an introduction (in English and German) by Mikhail Chekalin, Sven Grünberg and Thomas Kunadt. For each composer, there is also a brief biography (in English and German), a list of major compositions and, in some cases, a brief discography.
2. Ritual is actually Ritual 1 of a 2-part work entitled Two Rituals for Chamber Ensemble and synthesizers.(original Estonian title: Kaks rituaali kammeransamblile ja süntesaatoreile). These compositions are from Tüür's student period and are not on his official works list.
3. This disc is not commonly available in music stores, but can be ordered on-line from the Erdenklang website.
