Maestro Kitaro enchants and delights,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Enchanted Evening (Audio CD)
I bought this disc for Christmas to replace a copy that I gave to someone as a present years ago. I remember it made a vivid impression on me when I first heard it, and if anything, a few years down the line it sounds even better.
Recorded live (some information about the venue and date would have been interesting), this, I think, is one of Kitaro's best. My personal favourites are "Dance of Sarasvati", "Spirit of Taiko", a lovely version of "Silk Road", "Kokoro" and "Heaven and Earth".
I'm currently burning in my new pair of Sennheiser HD 380s, and this disc was a marvellous test for them. Every note came through clear as a bell, the phones coped well with a number of changes of dynamics and sound levels, and the clarity of the recording gave you the impression of sitting in the middle of the band. All I can say is - WOW!
This disc really should be heard. If you enjoy music by artists such as Mike Oldfield, Jean-Michel Jarre, Rick Wakeman or Tangerine Dream - go on, jump in!
