I bought this on Vinyl having already purchased it on CD. You can hear snippets of the tracks from various websites (Y@@@ube etc) though i'd guess if you're reading this review you know what to expect. Modern day composing using technology and tradition, this album offers the lot.. delicated chamber pieces to futuristic pieces. It is very relaxing and therapeutic and I would wholeheartedy recommend this guy's work to anyone.

I can't recommend this album highly enough. The 4th track, Shadow Journal, is possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard. Difficult to define or put into a category but I'll make a stab at it by calling it a mixture of classical, electronica and ambient/chill out. Simply stunning. £12 very well spent..

Like Memoryhouse, Max Richter's sadly deleted first CD, this album is suffused with a forlorn melancholia. The quotes from Franz Kafka (beautifully read by Tilda Swinton), compound the feeling that this is a nostalgic homage to the lost world of East European cultures that were shattered by Stalinist purges and Nazi pogroms. The standout track, 'The Shadow Journal', is impossibly beautiful, distilling the album's sense of loss into an achingly sad refrain for violin and, suprisingly, a jay!

Small but perfectly formed.

From all the five star reviews here on Amazon, my expectations turned out to be too high for this album. Tracks 1, 2 and 11 are very good. The rest of the songs aren't bad, but for the most part they start off promising and then fail to go anywhere. The clicking type writer is overused and distracts more than it adds.

Along a similar vein, I believe fans of tracks 1, 2 and 11 will be much better served by Brian Eno's "The Pearl" or "Music for Airports", Harold Budd's "Perhaps", Goldmund's "Corduroy Road" (available for download on iTunes), Arvo Pärt's "Alina" or "Miserere", Peter Gabriel's "Passion", or Hauschka's "Ferndorf".

this music was used on the TV drama DIVe, the linking of the passages to the story line was in my opinion superb, The arrangement caught the mood exactly, and listening to the cd on its own does not dissapoint, well worth a listen.
