I can see how your style has developed from the 1st symphony to the 5th. Symphony V is extremely dramatic and I love its colors and timbres; here you are at your utmost stylistic achievements. Also, it is so original to have in the process of recording first the orchestra and then the voices. As usual the vocal parts come first and dictate to the whole instrumental ensemble how to play.

on completing the first stage of recording of Symphony V.



I feel that the continuity of the five symphonies flowing into each other create a certain organic drama. I may perceive your five symphonies as one big symphony consisting of 5 sections, reaching its highest peak in the fifth section.
