A stunning range of relaxing free flow music to crisp power.
on 3 January 2002
The opening sequence of this CD has a simplicity that clicks the mind to be interested. The music increases in complexity and interest with the introduction of other instruments and moves to a fulfilling broad ending. This style carries through the CD with a novelty of presentation given to each track. Some have the tinkling gentleness that only the upper registers of the piano can sustain. Elsewhere the music, as in 'The Gathering- Beltaine', has almost a medieval throwback quality that stirs the prechristian ferver of throbbing beat and incantation. This is music to return to and acquire new insights into musical flow and inovative use of instruments and voices and will make you want to acquire more of this mans work.
