What the press says

A stellar young violist who has served as muse to prominent composers.

The New York Times (January 28th 2013) Read all reviews

...a mind-blowing collection that electrically fuses classical technique and structures with electronic textures, overdubbing, and full-bodied melodies.

Chicago Reader (February 11th 2013) Read all reviews

Sirota’s profile is sure to be raised by this exceptional release

Textura (February 28th 2013) Read all reviews

Solid pieces from Paul Corley and Daniel Bjarnason complete this satisfying program, which, while more tricked-out electronically than Sirota’s first offering, retains her aesthetic imprint.

Seth Colter Walls — eMusic (March 11th 2013) Read all reviews

Luminous, restless and contemplative by turns, the disc proves that the viola is anything but a joke.

If Sirota has yet to achieve her ten thousand hours of practice toward mastery, she is a few thirty-minute sessions away.

UTNE (March 19th 2013) Read all reviews

Muhly sets Sirota’s sharp, startling attacks against a serenely murmuring church organ, evoking a sensation of clamminess in the midst of serenity.

Pitchfork (March 19th 2013) Read all reviews

A new recruit to Bedroom Community’s close-knit neo-classical roster that says more with her viola than we’re able to express with actual words.

Self-titled Mag (March 22nd 2013) Read all reviews

...otherworldly, bold and new

Q2 (March 25th 2013) Read all reviews

The most beautiful album you will hear this year.

Matt Cibula — PopMatters (April 2nd 2013) ★★★★★★★★ Read all reviews

This is one of those rare albums that can serve as both a “gateway album” into contemporary classical and a deep listening experience for those already into the music.

Baroque revels in Sirota’s viola mastery, but also in feedback and noise.
