A remarkable album of works written specially for the celebrated Russian violinist Roman Mints. Technical virtuosity and state-of-the-art electronic manipulation combine to produce a startling, atmospheric and highly original CD.
“In its use of solo violin and electronics, Game Over is a virtuoso album.” —The Wire
“Mints is to be commended for such an enterprising disk, recorded with pristine clarity and aided by informative notes. I look forward to hearing more from this source.” —Gramophone
“…This is a really good album. The music is moody, but not overly so. It is experimental while staying approachable…It should appeal to a broad variety of listeners. The generation raised on video games, movies and television will find this a brand of instrumental music that seems relevant to today’s world. It is, quite possibly, a harbinger of the future of classical music.” —MusicWeb International
“… his playing is the star of the show. His conviction and sensitivity make a case for violinist as moody film hero, beneath a streetlamp and tuggling on a cigarette.” —The Strad
