[Giya Kancheli's] attractive ERGO infuses the "spiritual" style with which we have become familiar with a dollop of wit. Again, Kancheli makes do with few notes, and again, he derives uncommon eloquence from sudden silences. Mournful, ethereal string figures are complemented by English horn interjections and brass commentaries, which grow more insistent until they finally dominate. A crescendo metamorphoses into an obsessive three-note figure, when Kancheli derives a dancing motive that saturates the orchestra.
