14 tracks this time and much more of an epic. This album is more of a Classical work than before, starting with a 9-minute movement, followed by a short 2-minute chorale, then a long more Orchestral piece. It focuses well upon the instruments, and this time we get a heavy dose of the Orchestra in its entirety - strings, brass, woodwind, ethnic percussion, the lot. It's much more symphonic, and the longer movements allow the starting musical ideas to be developed throughout each piece to a grand conclusion. The chorales give short interludes between the main pieces, and work well in doing this without losing any of the ethos put forward by the rest of the music. The first three samples here are of the longer pieces. |
