The Evening of Iluvatar's Children

Prikosnovenie Records

For something rather unique to listen to, this CD will fit the bill.

Drawing from the folklore of The Lord of the Rings, Caprice presents an eclectic collection of songs centered on Hobbits, Elves, Orcs, and the world of Men -- accompanied by an orchestra of Russian musicians.

Mythological and medieval, and yet very much European and contemporary in style, delightful stories in song, like Elves of Rivendell, Galadriel's Message to Aragorn, and Sam's Song, all offer a fascinating glimpse of Tolkien's fantasy world from a musical perspective. Dramatic, and yet ethereal, it will require more than one listen to appreciate the creativity and ingenuity that have given birth to this delightful work.
