5.0 out of 5 stars Graceful and elegant, 2 Jan 2003
This review is from: Nosferatu [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Piano, guitars, sitar, oboe, tamboura and a church choir create the most beautiful music on this remarkable album. Höre, der du wagst starts with the gentle sounds of sitar and piano for a slow brooding buildup, then the pace picks up with Das Schloss des Irtums where the guitars gain prominence and likewise on the closing number Die Umkehr. The real masterpiece is Brüder des Schattens, Söhne des Lichts with its hypnotic, repetitive melody line and its gorgeous sitar, piano and guitar. This magnificent piece is more classical than popular music and would not be out of place on a Steve Reich album in its minimalist textures. There is also a spiritual quality about it that evoke feelings of loss, sorrow and redemption. Together with the album Until The End Of The World, this is my favourite soundtrack of all time. The music is never less than deeply moving, the epitome of grace and elegance.
