4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful bare variations 7 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Never before had I bought an album that seems quite so... Greek. The first couple of tracks open up, setting out the main themes that are used throughout the album. The string orchestra drones along in the background and a selection of traditional folky instruments are used to carry the main tunes. To some ears, it might seem repetitive, but to me it sounded nicely minimalist.
I first bought this CD years ago but it was stolen. I could never find it again for a long time and I bought Karaindrou's soundtrack to Eternity and a Day in the meantime. Then I found this album again and I snapped it up.
Having returned to this album after a gap of many years, Ulysees Gaze is similar in feel to Eternity & a Day. Coming earlier though, it has a smaller, tighter feel to it but doesn't suffer for that. It's definately music for a slightly overcast Sunday afternoon while looking out of the window at the world...

5.0 out of 5 stars This goes right to the heart! 19 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely brilliant! The music is achingly evocative and moving. It's a long time since I've heard anything that goes right to the heart in such a complete way. A wonderful sound experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful yearning 27 Aug 2010
By Sentinel TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Although I have both 'Eternity and a Day' and this album, I prefer the latter, as it has a more unified structure to the music, and seems less episodic. The beauty of the achingly yearning refrain on viola, which is gradually re-worked and re-presented throughout, in various orchestral combinations, lodges itself firmly in the heart. So: music for the romantic in us all, with a fine dusting of desolation to prevent the mix becoming too syrupy, enhanced by fine musicianship and production values (a given on ECM), throughout. Some reminders of Max Richter here, but a less sweet and more complex mix. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful! 17 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard this being played by Clare Balding on her Sunday morning Radio 2 show & this was chosen as it was Remembrance Sunday.
It has a sad quality, which as a ,cellist, i adore.
Some reviews have called it repetative...........it is, but, what a refrain! Moving & spiritual!
