Greatest Classical Middle Eastern CD Ever
Andrea Perkins | Chattanooga, TN United States | 09/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The CD is a classic. Why there aren't more reviews praising this masterpiece is beyond me. I never write reviews, but I had to let the world know that this CD is utterly suberb. This is classical Middle Eastern music at it's finest. Zyriab Trio masterfully invokes the complex elements of classical Mid-East music composed by various luminaries of the form, both old and new. It is a must have for every serious Arabic music collection. I keep waiting for their next release. The solo taqseems are incredibly moving, like no other taqseems I can think of, and I can think of a lot. But the taqseems are nothing compared to the more rhythmically driven pieces, such as Steps of My Beloved, which is one of the most beautiful pieces of music in existance."
Excellent CD

"Quick review... surprised there aren't more, but I strongly recommend this CD for anyone interested in a taste of Arabic music."
