Behind the Gardens-Behind the Wall-Under the Tree

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - MusD
Vollenweider, a Swiss musician, performs on a mechanically altered concert harp. His instrument enables him to counteract the meditative properties of the harp with a strong rhythmic pulse. The results are very low-frequency bass tones in the harp, coupled with an almost orchestral sense of harmony. This very popular album is upbeat, centering and a real delight.

    Seminal, singular and breathtakingly magical!

    For me, this release and the other early work of Andreas Vollenweider defined New Age music. Artful, complex, imaginative and ever-changing, “Behind the Gardens” is the first in a trio of complimentary recordings that bring to life the magic and mystery of our world through the eyes of an artist of rare depth and clarity. The second and third parts of the Trilogy are “Caverna Magica” and “White Winds”. All of the albums feature Vollenweider’s signature sound of dreamy, jazzy electroacoustic pedal harp accompanied by voice, synthesizer, a wide range of gentle percussion, and occasional contributions from other instruments. This is true music at its finest--playful, intricate compositions that are soulfully performed and ingeniously constructed, flowing one into another through an ever evolving succession of moods. Vollenweider has this to say about his art: “The making of music, dancing, painting--creativity--all of this has so much to do with the ongoing process of ‘finding oneself’, or better, of searching for the things that give us such an individual, complex, and miraculous depth of emotions…ideas…dreams…” He calls his endeavors “wonderful adventures” and “seeker’s journeys”, and relishes “making this music and bringing it to its listening friends.” And indeed, Vollenweider and his fellow musicians have found riches within and many friends without. In an era where the dumbing down of the New Age genre has resulted in a plethora of mindless dronings of ambient whitenoise, this album stands as a reminder of what meditative electroacoustic music can truly be. If you like this release, try its two companion works as well, either separately, or as packaged together in the two CD set “The Trilogy”. To follow Vollenweider’s continuing evolution as an artist, try the next albums he recorded: “Down from the Moon” and “Dancing with the Lion”.

    Awesome, Energetic and Vibrant

    This is a must for the New Age classis list. It is very energetic, full of passion and very vibrant. This music is best enjoyed with a glass of wine, candle-lightt and great company; as it will provoke a most enjoyable converstation with someone special. My thanks to Bob and Gina from Yorkshire, UK who turned me on to Andreas V. many years ago...
