Product description

This is a useful recording for someone who can't really decide whether they like classical music or not. Here, Jenkins is removed from his Adiemus habitat and surrounded by his own string ensemble, augmented by three female vocalists and a recorder player. The music he has written for this interesting gathering effectively takes the recognisable gestures of classical music and loops them into pop-song-length snippets which are listenable enough but which are also quietly (and probably entirely unintentionally) didactic in nature. So, if you wanted to begin a symphony with a good wallop, you might do it like this, or if you thought some Elizabethan court music would fit a particular bill, it might sound like this, and so on. If this sounds like middlebrow library music of the sort used by corporate video producers then perhaps Jenkins's mid-career credentials are showing through a little, but the fact remains that if this music appeals at all then it's a fairly short hop to its classical sources. The mythical lunar oceans "concept" which purports to underlie this work is, of course, complete bollocks. --Roger Thomas
