Synopsis

Album Description
An Enchanted Evening is a live album recorded during Kitaro?s world tour in 1995. It features music from his studio album, Mandala, and music from his original score for Oliver Stone?s movie, Heaven and Earth. Resonant with exotic Japanese instrumentation along with the more familiar guitar, flute and drums, it shimmers one minute and rumbles the next by turns soothing and stirring, rhythmic and dramatic, yet surprising intimate. It is a unforgettable event with contrasts that takes its cue from nature and spirit drawing refrains of the East and West together.

CD Reviews

Meditative and Enthralling
Susan Shwartz | Forest Hills, NY United States | 05/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Kitaro has the gift to liberate my mind from the workaday and cast it free into realms of contemplation -- and nowhere more than in this CD, enhanced by the fact that it was recorded during a live performance, which makes me feel as if I am participating in a ritual. I always imagine that I can hear the wind rushing over the deserts between one outpost and another of the Silk Roads.My favorite cut on this CD is the actual segment called "Silk Road." I have heard it in several different performances; the way Kitaro alters the tempo in this one strikes me as the most emotionally satisfying.I find the last segments, especially the taiko drums, exciting and frequently listen to them when I want to rev up my concentration so I can work effectively.Kitaro is a master musician, but like the sources he has learned from, he is also adept in helping listeners reach into their own lives and souls."

"There is a concert dvd to this cd,if you've never seen the skill in his musicianship,a must see. Watching him play the Taiko drums,I wondered how his arms never fell off. And then he picks up the guitar and plays Kokoro along with the main guitarist who plays an excellant solo with emotion.
I always recommend this cd to people who never heard of Kitaro. If this doesn't inspire them, nothing will."
