The harmonium holds an ambiguous reputation in India as well as in its "home continent" of Europe. There is an abundance of clear statements made by distinguished Indian musicians, theoreticians and also politicians who time and again would decry the instrument. Rabindranath Tagore's famous description of the harmonium as "that bane of Indian music" is just one example. And yet, the harmonium is arguably the instrument most widely used for accompanying the foremost medium of North Indian classical music, i.e. the human voice.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
One of my top ten. This is simply the perfection made human. Listen to "Depuis L' Automne "or the last "fifth season" for uncontrollable tears of joy, shivers down the spine, and goose bumps all over. I think that Vivaldi and his four seasons are definitely as good as this album so he can go back to his eternal sleep.

On their second album, Harmonium had expanded from a trio to a five-piece as they were joined by keyboardist Serge Locat and Pierre Daigneault who handled various wind instruments, including flute, clarinet and saxophone. This time there were actually no drums around at all, but you won't probably give it a thought at all when you're listening to the rich and progressive sound of "Si On Avait Besoin d'une Cinquième Saison" that had a concept based around the different seasons of the year. And before anyone start arguing that an old Italian used the same concept exactly 250 years earlier: Harmonium added their own twist by including a mysterious fifth season. This imaginary season was represented by the fantastic 17-minute "Histories Sans Paroles".

This is a Masterpiece Live album! It is among my all-time favorite live albums. Harmonium with modern & vintage keyboards is a perfect combination. Fiori's eccentric lead vocals are amazingly fluid. The ecstatic compositions parts have outstanding follow through, because the complex music is VERY changing here and significantly varies in intensity…

Harmonium was the eponymous debut album by Québécois band Harmonium released in 1974. It was their most folk driven album, and features the song that made them famous "Pour un instant". It features nowhere near as exotic instrumentation as on their later albums, mostly sticking to simple guitar and bass arrangements, with occurrences of drums on a few songs.

John Adam's Harmonium and Rachmaninov's The Bells

Harmonium, by the American composer John Adams, was the composer's first commissioned work during his tenure as Composer-in-Residence to the San Francisco Symphony from 1979 to 1985. The piece is a set to the texts of three poems, one by John Donne (Negative Love) and two by Emily Dickinson (Because I Could Not Stop For Love and Wild Nights).

Rachmaninoff's choral symphony, The Bells, is based on a Russian version of Edgar Allan Poe's poem by that title. The Russian version, written by symbolist poet Konstantin Balmont, is slightly shorter than Poe's original, and ends in a somewhat more peaceful, sentimental fashion.
