Overview

Although Klaus Schulze has been a major admirer of Lisa Gerrard ever since her work with Dead Can Dance back in the 1980s, their collaborations were a long time coming. It wasn't until the late 2000s that the two of them first joined forces musically. But when they finally got a chance to work together, there was no doubt that they were a perfect combination. Schulze and Gerrard's collaborations have resulted in both live and studio recordings; Dziekuje Bardzo: Vielen Dank falls into the first category. Dziekuje Bardzo has been released in DVD and CD versions, both of which focus on a November 13, 2008 concert at the Bazylika Ojc�w Salezjan�w in Warsaw, Poland. A major difference between the two, however, is the fact that this three-CD version of Dziekuje Bardzo also contains performances from Schulze and Gerrard's appearance at the Schiller's Theatre in Berlin, German the night before on November 12, 2008. And in both venues, the two of them enjoy an obviously strong rapport. Their chemistry is as strong on "Godspell" and "Bazylika NSJ" from the Warsaw concert as it is on "Spanish Ballerina" and "Ocean of Innocence" from the Berlin concert. However, this release is engaging not only because of Schulze and Gerrard's performances together but also, because of the material Schulze performs by himself. Gerrard is absent from "Shoreless One" and "Shoreless Two," both of which find Schulze playing the Mini Moog synthesizer unaccompanied. Of course, the Mini Moog is so closely identified with the '70s that some people will say that it can't help but sound "dated"; however, Schulze manages to make the Mini Moog relevant to the ambient electronica scene of the 21st century. And despite its excesses ("Bazylika NSJ" and "Ocean of Innocence" both last 41 minutes), the three-CD version of Dziekuje Bardzo: Vielen Dank paints an attractive picture of Schulze both with and without Gerrard.
