Faeries: A Realm of Magic and Enchantment

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
New age composer David Arkenstone wrote the music for this delightful series of tone poems about our fairy-tale friends. Each piece is written to accompany a story from a different country and features instruments distinctive to the region, enhanced by Arkenstone's keyboard magic. From the Algonquin people comes "Magic Birdcage," the tale of ten sisters who are changed into colorful songbirds while their cage becomes an island. The music features Native American flute and evokes images of a magically shimmering lake.

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
New age composer David Arkenstone wrote the music for this delightful series of tone poems about our fairy-tale friends. Each piece is written to accompany a story from a different country and features instruments distinctive to the region, enhanced by Arkenstone's keyboard magic. From the Algonquin people comes "Magic Birdcage," the tale of ten sisters who are changed into colorful songbirds while their cage becomes an island. The music features Native American flute and evokes images of a magically shimmering lake. "Jewels of the Færies" somersaults with Celtic glee, describing three gemstones that are transformed into a rainbow-hued opal. In these stories, fairies reside in stars or water lilies and change into white stags or bright-eyed young men. The most memorable lesson -- with a surprise ending -- comes from the Japanese tale called "Mountain Spirit," in which the Mt. Fuji fairy grants a virtuous stonecutter his wish to become more powerful than the mountain. The individual performers on FAERIES deserve credit, but the members of Troika -- a West Coast trio -- prefer to remain anonymous.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Troika creates evocative, globe-spanning sonic adventures with their 1999 album, Faeries. Irish and Indian percussion, Native American and bansuri flutes, as well as harps and horns combine in mystical new age pieces composed by one of the genre's leading talents, David Arkenstone.
