5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in wonder. 3 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember buying this back in 70something with the pull-out insert. I don't know if this review will be read but what I have to say is that I loved it immediately. It is so much more accessible than any of Jon's other works but then, wasn't he free to do what he wanted then?
It's beautiful; it's wonderful and it's the expression of an artist set free. Thirty-five years on, it is still as magical as the day I heard it.
For what it's worth, I saw JL and a whole bunch of others perform this (including deliberate bum notes in Sarabande)at the Royal Albert Hall. You want to know about impressed? Try Pete York sight-reading a drum solo.
This was the preface to David Bedford's The Odyssey.
With an extremely nervous Mike Oldfield on guitar...
Those were the days.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mature Masterpiece 15 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Sarabande is one of Lord's best solo works, or perhaps even the best. What the album features is nothing less than a modern-day classical masterpiece sampling the artist's extremely mature and deep-rooted skill both in composing and in orchestration. This unique musical bonbon is so perfect the listener has the feeling there is not a single note that could be added or left out. Made up of fast as well as slow pieces, the arrangement still is an inseparable whole, a nice little chamber concerto of our time. As Lord himself states: "the compostitions were good, the musicians [Andy Summers, guitar; Pete York, drums; Paul Karass, bass; Mark Nauseef, percussion; the Philharmonia Hungarica] were outstanding and the conductor [Eberhard Schoener] understood the music. Everything came together and I have to say, nothing I made before or since comes close to Sarabande." (from an interview at The Highway Star)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music 11 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Good music never dies. I heard this many years ago on a late night radio show whilst driving home. The DJ said to turn to volume up before he played it. I did and was totally blown away.
