Yugoslavian born Milos Raickovich writes modern music in a new and accessibly appealing style which he calls New Classicism. New Classicism is, to quote Mark Swed from his insightful liner notes for the CD: "...neither ironic nor naive but is, instead, a unique postmodern response to both Minimalism and multiculturalism. It is surely possible to hear Schubert, Haydn or Rossini in Raickovich's "New Classicism"; but under Schubert, Haydn or Rossini lie Eastern European folk music, Minimalism, Messiaen, and, deeper still the Pacific Rim and its cultures. All are part of Raickovich's remarkable musical roots, but they operate in the background, nested like the windows on a computer screen.

Listen to Raickovich's Symphony No.1 with a modern ear, and out of those Schubertian patterns, patterns more akin to Philip Glass seem to magically pop out like hidden figures..."

Reviews
"If you like new music that sounds like classical or early romantic music you'll like Raickovich. His music is earnest and well-made. The Happy Overture is particularly good, and the Preludes and Fugues for toy piano is charming. The performances are quite good, and Mode's sound is warm, with presence." - Stephen D.
