Genesis melodies and harmonies.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Six Pieces For Orchestra (Audio CD)If you love Genesis then you may wish to give this wonderful album a listen?
The melodies and harmonies hint at Genesis songs you HAVE heard and Genesis songs that may have been had the band still been a working unit.
The songs have been arranged for Orchestra and have a Vaughn-Willians, Gustav Holst feel to my ears. One could play 'The Lark ascending' by Vaughn-Williams and then a section of Holst's 'The Planets' followed by one of the pieces from 'Six' and find them all complimentary.
Upon first play i found the 52 minute play time whiz by. It had me involved every step of the way and i wanted to hear it again.
The orchestra sounds great and the solo performances are exquisite as one expects from NAXOS.
To sum up: It delivers from the first play and grows from there into a special experience.
