The CD "Firebird" reflects the unpredictable character of the magical glowing bird in Slavic folklore. The bird can be both a blessing and a curse to its captor. Each piece is rich in complexity with unexpected musical elements – contrasting innocence with danger, stillness with flight, weakness with power, and contemplation with drama.
