Dmitry Evgrafov "Comprehension Of Light (Fat Cat)"
Moscow-based composer Dmitry Evgrafov, who is completely self-taught, has been releasing music since he was a seventeen year old putting out music by himself. Now we find him signed to Fat Cat’s wonderful modern classical imprint 130701, and poised to release his most mature, haunting collection to date. Comprehension Of Light supposes to tell a cohesive story from start to finish, “a story of a long and difficult personal journey from darkness to light.” The result is at times breathtaking in it’s beauty. If you are a fan of other modern classical composers like Hauschka, Jóhann Jóhannsson, or Max Richter, than this album is definitely for you. Working with the Iskra String Quartet here, the sound is rich and full, sophisticated and lovely. Check out the hopeful, ambient “Znanie.”
