CD Reviews

Film Music Breaks Free
Jeffrey Wheeler | Memphis, TN USA | 03/29/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As moving Congo rhythms, reflective vocals and choral chants serve the foreground, a striking symphonic palette builds all around. With a magnificent dynamic range, by turns restrained and bold, the music describes a journey toward Congo's political independence, and the story of its leader. It is a powerful blend of African culture and European dramatic tradition, well beyond its share of mediocre passages."
