5.0 out of 5 stars Music from the Olive Frontier 6 Mar 2013
By JB TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
For this project Christina Pluhar and her group L'Arpeggiata explore music from the 'olive frontier', an area comprising a small part of France, Turkey and North Africa, as well as Jordan and Portugal (honorary members even though they have no actual Mediterranean coastline).

As with previous albums such as La Tarantella - Antidotum Tarantulae /Galeazzi ∑ Beasley ∑ L'Arpeggiata ∑ Pluhar and All'Improvviso - Ciaccone, Bergamasche e un po' di Folie... /L'Arpeggiata ∑ Pluhar, the instrumentation is slanted towards the ancient, even though the material may not necessarily be so. On this recording we have instruments as diverse as the baroque theorbo (played by Pluhar herself), the harpsichord and psaltery, as well as more exotic examples such as the saz and qanun from Turkey and the lavta from Greece.

Rising above the pulsating haze of the plucked instruments, the vocalists - from Portugal, Greece and Turkey - sing of the joys and despair of the human spirit and of love's lost hopes and dreams. Often referencing the profound mysteriousness of the great sea itself, these frequently overclouded texts shouldn't imply that the album is a depressing listen; it isn't, and when the sun breaks through it's dazzling, any black thoughts swept away in a festival of colour and celebration.

The recording was made in the Salle Byzantine, an opulent private theatre built in the nineteenth century by the Parisian Countess de Béhague, a friend of Rodin, Proust, Valéry and Sarah Bernhardt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mediterranean Magic 7 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I anticipated a good hour's listening when I ordered the CD, but this has knocked my socks off! Glorious vocals and superb musicianship throughout. Ms Pluhar has done it again in blending old and new together and L'Arpeggiata has another triumph under it's collective belt. The bonus DVD is a REAL bonus, too. Buy without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realmente muito bom! 8 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since receiving this compact disc in the post I have listened to it every morning before going to work. So far I have enjoyed every listen and have not wanted to skip tracks or switch it off at all. I haven't got round to watching the DVD part of it yet.

Another great recording by L'Arpeggiata. It bought some sorely missed sunshine into a very long winter! I can thoroughly recommend this recording to my friends and family!

3.0 out of 5 stars No a patch on the earlier albums 8 Oct 2013
By Si
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was disappointing in comparison to all of the other Pluhar / L'Arpeggiata material, which I am literally ecstatic about. It could be the material, but the album lacks the depth and detail of the other albums.
