Synopsis

Album Description
For more than three decades, Deuter has offered listeners a gateway to a new musical experience - one that incorporates lightness of spirit, depth of vision, and an innovative blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. Deuter was instrumental in bringing the music of India and the Far East to Western audiences long before the music industry became familiar with the concept of world music. Despite the fact that he has introduced new dimensions and a fresh approach to music from other cultures, Deuter's music has always remained accessible to his listeners.Sands of Time: Selected Studio & Concert Recordings 1974-1990 is comprised of selected studio and concert recordings from Deuter's long and distinguished career. The first recording features compositions from such seminal albums as Silence is the Answer, Nirvana Road, Celebration, Cicada, Land of Enchantment, and San, as well as music from the video soundtrack to The Petrified Forest. The second recording offers six digital selections from concert performances throughout the United States. Throughout the recordings, Deuter's gentle melodies and joyful rhythms are embracing, like an invitation to dance and celebrate life itself. Sands of Time: Selected Studio & Concert Recordings 1974-1990 speaks directly from the heart of the player to the heart of the listener.

CD Reviews

A great collection, carefully chosen.

"This CD contains a broad spectrum of Deuter's works and will satisfy anyone who is curious about his musical style. Sometimes, compilation CD's can be cheap, money making affairs but I've got to say that 'Sands Of Time' is an excellent representation of Deuter's musical output from 1974 to 1990(his best period in my opinion). There is a good mix of meditative and sparkling, uplifting pieces to keep the listener entranced. I bought this CD out of curiosity in 1991 (before the internet as we know it) and I feel it contains enough of Deuter's music to satisfy my needs. I've heard his other CD's on the internet through the 90's but I can't say that they really expand musically on what he has already produced.
If all the myriad of music he's produced just bewilders you, then I would highly recommend this compilation. It's got all his best stuff, so save yourself time and money!"

"A review I read said words to the effect that Deuter always produces great sound. Having listened to this anthology of his older material, I agree. A lot of "new age" type music fades with time, and the development of production standards. Deuter's work stands up nicely against more modern productions. A good place to start, or reflect, on this type of music."
