CD Reviews

Beautiful Rampal and Laskine Collaboration
Daniel G. Berk | West Bloomfield, Michigan | 08/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an extraordinarily beautiful collection of music. I have enjoyed it since it came out originally in LP form in 1978 and purchased it again as a CD in 1995, so that I could play it on the CD decks in my office and car. These are two places where the pastoral quality and calming effect of these performances are particularly welcome.The blending of flute and harp comes off extremely well, and there is not a low point in the entire collection."
What was lost is now found
V. Lemon | Pasadena, CA | 04/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am so glad to find this again. Due to space constraints, I had to give up all my vinyl. I have missed this album, especially in the hot weather. I always think of it as "cool water over smooth stones". It makes a hot night bearable: lights off, a candle or two. Silence. And then...the music. So peaceful, so liquid."
A splendid departure

"Studying Japanese language and culture led to many hours listening to koto and sakuhachi recordings. While wondering how those instruments might sound to the Western ear, it was pure chance that led to this collaboration. Listening to Rampal had always been a pleasure, but his adaptation of Japanese music in this CD was a special delight. Whatever plaudits might be due Rampal for any of his work, this one seems to rise above the rest. He is able to stretch the qualities of an historic Western instrument to encompass what should be, but isn't, an alien musical form. Rampal's superb talents are brought fully to bear in this work, which remains a particular favourite in my household."
