Passionate Play
Tinker | Los Angeles, Ca. | 07/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music of this CD is as full of passion, grief, joy, humanity, humor, play and pathos as Shakespeare's own body of works. Ensemble Galilei pours their hearts and talents into the various pieces, whether they are resurrecting traditional works, or birthing new ones. From Gamba to harp, pipes to drums, each of these women combines skillful technique with joyful interpretation. I love listening to this CD, whether I'm driving or writing or just hanging out. (and I love watching this group perform, too) I'm a fan, can you tell?"
Visualizing Beauty
G. Schenk | Leesburg, VA USA | 08/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recently had the good fortune to direct a performance of King Lear--the ENTIRE five acts, in a community theatre, non-profit setting. I used twenty-four fully committed non-actors, who for the love of the ideas, participated in this performance. The first and main challenge that I faced was, how do I go "behind" the words, and invoke the right emotions, etc., to give these actors the range and tools needed for an effective, powerful performance? Critical to this performance was the beauty and brilliance of this recording, which I used throughout the various scenes of the play. This helped the performers tremendously, creating the different tapestries in the mind of the Bard. In short, this work is real genius, that I was so happy that I stumbled across. I am now putting in our performance programs, along with our most heart-felt thanks to E.G., the name of the recording and I have copies from Telarc to sell at each performance!"

"I had heard this group on public radio over the years and finally saw them live recently. That's when I bought this CD, along with several others by E.G. This one is my favorite - really beautiful, soulful music you will still enjoy after many listenings. A wonderful mix of ancient and modern interpretation."
