mdotpasq Genuinely one of the most exceptional body of modern classical works of our time in my opinion.
Musically, emotionally and sonically exceptional. Favorite track: Rootedness.

Travis Aaron From a spacious murk and gloom we slowly emerge into a pensive light. The narrative of this album is told through these moments of catharsis that feel well earned owing to disparity. There can be no comprehension of light without an awareness of it's opposite. I can't pick a favourite this time because this album works so well as a whole, and that's a powerful achievement.

Camryn Marquez Previously I had thought that Matt Emery had crafted what would become my favorite modern classical album to be released in 2017, but this album has topped that one. Both have brilliant covers and are beautiful sorrows carried by the wind, but the sensibilities of this release and its incredibly poetic title have won over my heart. Favorite track: Wandering.

about

A must-hear for fans of fellow 130701 alumni Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka, Comprehension… marks Dmitry’s first ever vinyl release and offers a genuinely rich, deep and rewarding listening experience. A wonderfully conceived and realized work, its narrative conceptually clear and moving with the emotional power and precise logic of a great film score. Forged in a very focused period of composition through late 2016 until early 2017, the writing process of ‘Comprehension of Light’ differed markedly from Dmitry’s previous releases.

Comprehension… acts as a predominantly bleak sound-world. Eschewing the lyrical, piano-based impressionism that was becoming his hallmark, it instead unveils a constellation of heavy drones; low register brass and string swells; percussive rumbling / clacking; and sparse string composition. A stunningly conceived and executed album, Comprehension Of Light traces a redemptive narrative arc and bears witness to a rising young talent in the field of modern composition. It feels like a major step forward.
