This music came as the top point of my life and artistic paradox.

Boris Kovac’s second album for the Canadian label Disques Victo, East Off Europe: Closing the Circle ranks among the best musical achievements of his career… The contrasts between quiet and powerful, pastoral and dark are enhanced by a wonderful comprehension of dynamics…Moreover it is crucial to understand that Kovac’s music does not belong to classical music, rock music, or even instrumental music, nor does it fit into a particular time period. Beautifully timeless and moving, East Off Europe: Closing the Circle can be a revelation to any open-minded music lover.
