2019 EU issue on standard 2LP - Stunning new album of soothing material recorded in his very own inimitable style, with the lead instrument now being the grand piano!
‘Nocturne’ is Vangelis' 2019 follow-up to his stunning 2016 spacey release: ‘Rosetta’, and Vangelis fans need to know two things here:
1. There ARE some background synth orchestrations within the music on this album, and…
2. There are a lot of BRAND NEW PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS on this album – 11 to be precise alongside 6 New Piano Arrangements of Vangelis classics, so, if you’re like me, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s not just a pure solo piano work.
For the first time Vangelis plays a grand piano on this record, and within the wealth of new compositions, you will find tracks inspired by the night time and the artist’s long-held passion for space.
New tracks include: ‘Nocturnal Promenade’, the piece that opens the album, as well as: ‘Through The Night Mist’, ‘Sweet Nostalgia’ and ‘Lonesome’.
