BOOK OF ROSES

Andreas Vollenweider
Sony
1992

Andreas' electroacoustic harp gives an almost pop music feel to many of the compositions on this unique disc. A creaking door at the very beginning opens to a world of wonderful, upbeat pieces that give a unique quality to harp music with touches of Celtic, Mediterranean, and African colouring.

Each of Andreas' recordings has a theme, or endeavours to tell a beautiful and enthralling musical story.

Book of Roses is a recording that has both, presenting four 'chapters', each with different musical 'episodes'.

Fun, eclectic, Book of Roses is a veritable dance of music.
