EARTHSONG AND STARDANCE

Prudence 398.6762.2

In the end the whole universe consists of pure energy, it vibrates.
After Platon and Newton it was nature philosopher, mathematician, astronomer and theologian Johannes Kepler, who in the early 17th century discovered that the basic principles of music apply to the whole cosmic hustle and bustle – and vice versa, that the whole plan of the world is mirrored in the essence of music. He called it the “harmony of the world”.

Gandalf follows these thoughts in a new orchestral composition, which he created for his 30th stage anniversary. This unique “Symphony Of The Third Millenium” marks a new peak in his rich oeuvre.
The piece is a tribute to the wonderful variety and beauty of the universe, to the miracle of all life and being. For the choir passages Gandalf used a selection of verses from the Bhagavat Gita in its original language, Sanskrit, which is said to be one of the oldest languages of mankind.

When earth and sky meet one another
A harmony is born

The true master of new age music Gandalf returns with a new album “Earthsong and Stardance” released by the renowned label Real Music. This album is the epic symphony celebrating the variety and beauty of the whole universe.

The Corso Wien Orchestra with their subtle classical approach and Sanskrit choir which beautifully sings in one of the oldest languages of mankind helps the artist to create the polyphonic sound which goes in many dimensions. And certainly all compositions are united by Gandalf’s unique style which enchants the listener and makes him float easily on the waves of Gandalf’s inspirational music. One wants just to enjoy the touching and heartfelt artist’s guitar. Yet I’d like to add that all compositions of “Earthsong and Stardance” are listened to as a single whole.

“Earthsong and Stardance” is filled with joy and it celebrates life with all the vital force which is contained in the deep and versatile music of this gifted Austrian composer and performer.

But these words don’t fully describe Gandalf’s music. What are main features of it? The music of Gandalf has a special essence which can be felt beyond the sound. It contains positive vibrations which raise the spirit and give it a needed strength.

You feel how life is beautiful and amazing. You again want to love and create in this very rich and exciting world where material and spiritual are just integrated parts of a whole, and it is hard to determine where one ends and another begins. You want to get lost in love and find yourself overfilled with new constructive plans and ideas.

Listen to the album “Earthsong and Stardance” and sense the vibrations of life, and the pulsations of the universe itself.
