Only 3 Zamfir tracks on this CD

"Don't be misled that this is a Zamfir CD. Only tracks 1 (parts a & c), 5 and 10 feature Zamfir. The other artists on this disc include Horizont (tracks 1b, 7, 12), Dagobert Bohm (guitar, track 3), Richard Souther (Synthesizer, tracks 2, 4, 8, 11, 13) and Amy Shreve (Harp, track 6). Unfortunately the music isn't as relaxing as the picture on the cover. For Zamfir fans, you can find versions of the 3 tracks on this CD featured on other Zamfir CD releases such as "The Tranquil Sound of the Pan Pipes", "The Beautiful Sound of the Pan Pipes" and "Folksongs from Rumania"."
Magical But Lacking

"A Midsummer Night's dream by Zamfir has its few moments, but is not something living in my CD player. The songs Highlands and Dreaming Strings are beatiful, and contain melodies and harmonies we aren't used to hearing. Also, this music epitomizes the sounds of Shakspeare. But, I feel that the rest of the almbum is quite bland and lacking a certian thing that Zamfir has in the rest of his works. I feel that if the tempos were higher, and the instrumental parts were more intricate, it would be better. How ever its not. I suggest that unless you are familiar with Zamfir's work,and like it, you should not get this album."
