Book of Roses album for sale Product Description

Book of Roses album for sale by Andreas Vollenweider was released Jan 10, 2006 on the Columbia label. Andreas Vollenweider's Book of Roses marries concept to contemporary instrumentalism, and blends the music of numerous cultures into the composer's already worldly sound. Separated into four chapters (where each song is an "episode"), the album chronicles the journey of a young girl from dances in grand ballrooms, through mysterious woods full of magical jugglers, to an eventual meeting with the Sphinx. Book of Roses CD music contains a single disc with 19 songs.   ...See Full Description

Somewhat of a departure from his past efforts, Andreas Vollenweider's "BOOK OF ROSES" creates a magical aural world complete on one CD. Especially enchanting are tracks featuring flamenco guitarist extraordinaire, Gerardo Nunez, and the dazzling choral artistry of South Africa's Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Highly recommended for Vollenweider fans, and anyone else out there whose musical tastes run to the eclectic and the positive.

A real keeper
Book of Roses CD music A friend loaned me this CD, and I immediately went and bought it. Although difficult to put in any category you will hear styles reminisent of Beethoven, Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd, flamenco, etc. Vollenweider uses an incredible number of foreign instuments, voices and a full orchestra to back his signature electroacustic harp. The CD is eclectic, relaxing and full of muscial surprises. The more I listen to it, the more I discover; this is one CD I'll be listening to for a long time. As a hint, I think the music sounds best if the high tones accentuated and the bass turned down a bit. I plan on listening to more of Vollenweider's music.

Chill out
Book of Roses buy CD music This is a superb album. I first heard it at a friends house some years ago and had been on the look out for it ever since. It's difficult to pin it down to a style. You could play it in the background at dinner parties or pump up the volume and get into the ever changing moods and intricate musicianship. Like a good film score it will draw you in to whatever world you want to create for it inside your own head. If you haven't heard any other Vollenveider before (like me) this one will impress.

A Moving Experience
I was already quite familiar with Vollenweider when I purchased this CD. I was taking a two hour bus ride to visit a friend and took this along to pass the time. Well... the music is so transportive that the tedious bus ride faded into the background for me. Fabulous mix of beautifully arranged and performed music. Exotic, relaxing and mind blowing sounds. Andreas Vollenweider never disappoints.

Roses or Precious Gems?
I have loved this CD for soooo long. I own all of the Andreas' collection and this is my favorite, although it is very hard to choose. I like this one the best because when I close my eyes and just listen, I feel as if I'm traveling around the Mediterranean taking in the sites and sounds. It is just as visual as it is audible. A must have for the Vollenweider enthusiast.
