Listen to it every night before sleep.
Lief Ove says: ‘A part of a Bagatelle by the Ukrainian Valentyn Silvestrov. The 84 years old composer was evacuated from his home in Kyiv a few days ago. Am so shocked and saddened by this nightmare. Love and strength to Ukraine and its people.’

Andsnes is a marvel.
