4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Mar. 2014
Format: Audio CD
A small recording with a big impact. Lasting not a great deal longer than
half an hour Christina Vantzou's new album 'No.2' is brimful of enchantments.
It may well turn out to be one of the finest things (chocolate and Smurfs
notwithstanding!) to have emerged from Belgium in the last hundred years.

These eleven pieces, scored for a compact instrumental ensemble with
the addition of occasional vocal parts, punch way above their weight.
They are cinematic in character; their terse titles hinting at ambiguous
subject matter which tantalizingly refuses to give up the whole story.

The sublime composition 'Vancouver Island Quartet', scored for strings
and a disembodied spectral voice is by far the most affecting and
haunting number in the set but the extraordinary 'Going Backwards To
Discover That Which Was Left Behind', a slow-moving lament whose
brooding introduction for piano and cello blooms eventually into an
incandescent central climax where strings, brass and woodwind unite
in a sweeping tutti of wonderfully luminous chords before slipping away
once again into the dark shadows we experienced in the opening bars,
comes a very close second. The delightful miniature 'Arc' comes into land
in less that two minutes and shimmers like early morning sunlight on the
surface of a mountain lake. The spirit of Corelli seems close at hand.

Ms Vantzou's gentle visions, in their own small way, make the World a better place.

Highly Recommended.
