And as I did more research about Lachini, his background and his music, the more interested I became. Put simply, these are pieces that are hard to believe are being written today. They're that ahead of their time.

Comparisons to contemporaries happen-as they often do-when it comes to trying to explain Lachini's music to those who are uninitiated...
