Moody 70s musical interpretation of Tolkien's great trilogy.
on 11 December 2001
Wonderful. This recording gets so much closer to the spirit of JRR Tolkien's work than any other piece of music, without attempting to be too "illustrative". It is a highly personal interpretation, and one feel's that Bo Hansson is in tune with the mood of his Nordic roots and nature, whilst fusing with the jazz genre of the 1970s. Hansson's greatest work could only have been written in that most experimental of decades.
Light a single candle. Turn on "Lord of the Rings" in a nearly dark room. And enjoy.
