A Camelot Reawakened: A Vision Fulfilled

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
New Age Retailer once pegged composer and pianist Richard Shulman as "the quintessential New Age musician," and his ideals behind this ambitious project -- about following dreams to create a more beautiful world -- definitely live up to that billing. The dramatic piano, orchestra, and vocal extravaganza was recorded live in concert in January 2002 and in a closed session later that month in Asheville, NC, performed by a 35-piece orchestra and a 20-member choir, conducted by Robert Hart Baker.

The dramatic piano, orchestra, and vocal extravaganza was recorded live in concert in January 2002 and in a closed session later that month in Asheville, NC, performed by a 35-piece orchestra and a 20-member choir, conducted by Robert Hart Baker.

Those notions translate here to a rich landscape which sets a course ("The Dream"), then goes through various mood swings in order to fulfill it ("A Celebration," "Releasing the Past/Healing"). The production is impressive, but some of the most appealing moments are created by Shulman's thoughtful solo piano style.
