Kancheli's musical landscape is unique: a bleak, blasted northern heath, shot through with the nostalgic ache of the political exile, painting a desolate realm with austere and striking beauty. ...À LA DUDUKI refers to a wailing reed instrument of the Caucasus. In its starkly contrasted elements, ...À LA DUDUKI presents melodic fragments, pointillist piano notes, [and] evocative distant trumpet calls. Between the clamorous chords piled one on another, the music proceeds with a quiet strength as discordant instrumental lines rumble underneath...and a palpable sense of unease resonates long after the work has ended.
Lawrence A. Johnson, The New York Times,1/1/0001
