Product Description

Winter Garden is the first simultaneous collaboration between renowned Italian musician and producer Eraldo Bernocchi, ambient pianist and musical icon Harold Budd and producer/guitarist Robin Guthrie, founder of Cocteau Twins and Violet Indiana. We say simultaneous , for Eraldo Bernocchi had previously produced, arranged and played on Fragments From The Inside (released by SubRosa) with Harold Budd, while the collaboration between Harold Budd and Robin Guthrie started in the 80s (Lovely Thunder, The Moon and The Melodies, The White Arcades) and became a quasi-partnership since 2005 (see for example the soundtrack for the film Mysterious Skin by Araki, the dyptich Before The Night Falls/After The Day Breaks and more recently Bordeaux , all released on Darla Records) Recorded in Tuscany in 2010, produced in Tuscany and in the south of France in 2011, Winter Garden aligns itself with the aforementioned recent releases by Budd and Guthrie, awash with Budd s minimal piano and Guthrie s guitar drones, only to differentiate itself through a more marked used of electronics and being punctuated by a soft, minimal bass pulse. Winter Garden is an incredibly refined, stratified, and precisely chiseled recording a snapshot of a collaboration which after two live audio-visual dates in Italy 2010 (Centrale Elettrica Taccani and Palazzo Lomellino in Genoa) will be taken on the road in 2012.

I enjoyed Budd's albums of the 1980s, but in the 90s and 10's not so much. This is back on form, maybe because he is part of a trio.

Anyway, whatever the reason, this is a good ambient music album.

A couple of tracks had the occasional thing in them that took away from the ambience for me, but everything else was good. If you like this kind of stuff it's worth buying. I've listened to it quite a bit.

HASH(0x99697af8) out of 5 stars Best of the Year! 3 Jan. 2012
By Janice A. Bogacki - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like all three of these musicians and have reviewed many of Guthrie and Budd's works in the past. However, there is nothing that I've enjoyed this year in ambient music as much as this CD. Melodic, mellow and moody this CD is the best of 2011. It is a little pricey at about 23.00, but it is worth it. I like each track, especially because each one blends well with the next. These guys really have a winning formula with this CD, and it was a hit with everyone that I gave it to as a Christmas gift. I hope that there are more collaborations with these three terrific ambient artists.

HASH(0x98b7b51c) out of 5 stars A delicate trio 22 Dec. 2011
By Victor Gane - Published on Amazon.com
This is yet another wonderful collaboration between Harold Budd, Robin Guthrie, and for the first time Eraldo Bernocchi. Having listened to all of these veteran musicians' previous collaborations, I was not surprised of the depth, breadth and exquisiteness of the soundscape they created in the "Winter Garden". Highly recommended for those who appreciate ambient and minimalist music.

this has a very similar feeling to Moon and the Melodies -- but i feel as though its not as cohesive as Moon and the Melodies -- i realize that is not the same group, but comparisons are hard to avoid due to the Harold Budd collaboration --
Still pick this up as a companion piece as it's still subtle and beautiful in it's own right --

HASH(0x98b7b75c) out of 5 stars Symphonic Sorcery 27 July 2015
By Nathan Dunn - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Harold Budd's prodigious orchestrations are treated to some exotic and complementary facets with the talents of Eraldo Bernocchi. The ambience is warmer and a little more syrupy than what we have come to expect from Budd's collaborations with Robin Guthrie, but that same quality of polyphonically induced altered state remains reassuringly in place. This albums is ideal for crisp mornings, starlit reverie, and long, long drives accentuated by natural scenery. Immerse yourself.

HASH(0x983f6e84) out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant! 27 Nov. 2013
By slowmotionburn - Published on Amazon.com

Absolutely Brilliant! If you havent picked this up yet, do yourself a favor. 3 of the biggest heavy hitters in ambient collaborate on one album. Harold Budd and Robin Guthrie have put out albums before, but adding in Bernocchi is the cherry on the sundae. Buy it now!
