CD Reviews

A classical modernity
moussig | 08/20/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What stroke me more than everything when I first listened to this CD was its perfect blending of classical tradition and highly personal style. The way the suites are composed reminds us of Prokofieff or even Tchaïkovsky, though we immediately recognise Mr Goldenthal's style in the modern use of the brass instruments or the howlings of the woodwinds. He also uses old forms (the terrifying tarentella) but in a way no classical composer would have dared using them. This score is hardly as experimental as other music by the same composer (his music for the movie Alien 3 for example), but never lacks originality. Even out of the theatre, it is so evocative and coloured we can hardly be bored.The performers are excellent and help greatly appreciate this demanding but rewarding music.The only reason I didn't rate the music 5 stars is that Mr Goldenthal can be even better, as he demonstrated with his oratorio Fire Water Paper."
Love It.

"This is a wonderful CD. I'm a big fan of Maestro DeCou. His work is always delightful."
Atmospheric & powerful

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A relatively new ballet that lives up to the great story in every way. Foreboding, dramatic, unexpected. As satisfying as a sudden, wild thunderstorm that pours rivers of rain, crisscrosses the sky with lightning, rattles the windows, and suddenly stops, leaving a moist and perfect stillness."
