The jury reports that it is a work with “much energy, built on a compelling concept. It’s” Music That Matters “; a work that manages to grip the listener for in its entire duration. It is a kind of intercultural music, not an amalgamation of diverse cultures, but an entirely unique form with a fully personal thought.”
