Styx was one of the titans of the hugely popular AOR movement – along with Boston, Foreigner, Journey, and REO Speedwagon – embraced by the U.S. mainstream in the late '70s and early '80s. The end of the Chicago-based band's peak period coincided with one of the most ambitious and notorious projects of the time, the 1983 concept album Kilroy Was Here…
Music for violin and piano by three composers from three different countries, who have a fascination with minimal music, the music where repetition, silence and meditation are predominant, music for a different mindset. This new recording presents the important Violin Sonata by Philip Glass, one of the pioneers and icons of Minimal Music, “Time…and again” by the Russian mystic Giya Kancheli, and “Converso” by Erkki Tüür, one of the Baltic minimalists, in the spirit of Arvo Pärt.
The best band ever reformed. This is the welcome result. Much better sounding than the CD.
