Just too EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot adequately describe this record or locate its music in a context that would make sense. It's sort of middle eastern meets classical sniffing a little Brian Eno, humming a raga or two. I recommend it highly, but you will have to hear it to understand it.
This is one of the most haunting pieces of music I've heard in years. I've had this CD for little more than a day and it's already a classic. Don't just buy this disc, get copies for your friends for the holidays. I hope Mr. Chaloub comes to New York soon so we can see him perform live! -K
this album is one of the best that i have ever listened to, the violin is sounding so naturel like a great singer,the music in this album is so different than any other world music record something about it is so clever and very attractive, a bit on the sad side as if Mr chalhoub wants to say something, i think the album is very creative and genuinely honest. i would recommended to all people with interesting musical taste
superb album and great violin player, really phenominal, some moments in this album are undescribable, the sound is very intimate and pure with a lot of maturity and feeling. i would love to see how Mr. chalhoub will perform his music live, it seems he used so many accoustic insruments, i don't normaly enjoy the violin in this concept but somehow in this album it works beautifuly, i feel that many people are waiting for the new music and probably this is it, check it out yourself, masterfull
I am so addicted to this CD! It was the best impulse buy I have ever made. I had previewed only 30 seconds of it before making up my mind on purchasing it. The music that Claude Chaloub has made is extremely full of emotion and feeling. It's intense but at the same time so very smoothing. I can not wait till he (if he) makes another album.
I picked this up and have been surprised at how deeply I love it! I play it over and over and am impressed by its beauty and haunting quality. It's truly a modern classic.
I can't stop listening to this CD. From the first notes, it grabs you and takes you on a musical high. Chalhoub interpretation of Satie is fantastic and perfect for a lounge setting. His incorporation of Arabic sounds is also mesmerizing. I hope he tours soon.
Just by chance, I picked up this CD and listened to the samples at our Barnes and Noble and I was hooked. I'm a fan of haunting, perhaps slightly Eastern melodies - and this is beautiful. The Chicago Stradivarius Society lent him a Stradivarius to record this album with, which just goes to show how talented this artist is. I definitely recommend it.
