Mastering The Art of Melody,
This review is from: The Art of Melody (MP3 Download)
This composition was originally on The Enid's 2010 album Journey's End and was composed and performed by Robert John Godfrey using a synthesised orchestra. At the time of The Enid's Birmingham Town Hall show to launch the album he said he couldn't perform it live by himself, but that we'd hear it one day. In October 2011 I was at the Birmingham Symphony Hall to hear this beautiful piece performed by The CBSO just as it was supposed to be, whilst RJG watched on. It was simply stunning and the audience was enthralled. Robert John Godfrey is one of the foremost composers of our generation, and with The Art of Melody he will hopefully finally get the recognition he so richly deserves. He has an album of compositions for piano and orchestra due out imminently, also called The Art of Melody of which this is just a taster. He really has mastered the Art.
