5.0 out of 5 stars Light Fantastic, 26 Jun 2011
This review is from: Dustin O'Halloran: Lumiere (Audio CD)
Dustin O'Halloran is an American pianist/composer who has
made a gentle and haunting contribution to the listening
world with his new album 'Lumiere'. The music is, indeed,
full of light of many kinds. Whether in the gorgeously
glowing strings and tuned percussion supporting the piano
on opening track 'A Great Divide'; or in stripped-down but
no-less intense keyboard inventions like 'Opus 44', these
pieces gnaw away quietly at our senses until they take up
residence in our spirit (and this truly is spiritual music!)

The American Contemporary Music Ensemble are to be congratulated
as much as the creator of these nine beautiful compositions for their
luminous elaboration and decoration of the core thematic material.
For example, the string playing on 'Quartet N.2', a deeply moving
threnody of quasi-Baroque sensibility, is simply sublime.

Final track 'Snow and Light' has a quiet passion which almost burns!
You will hear fewer things more beautiful than this in one lifetime.

Essential.
