Product Description

David Lanz ~ East Of The Moon

Amazon.com

After releasing more than 15 recordings for his original record label (Narada), pianist David Lanz makes his debut on Decca Records with East of the Moon, a well-mannered blend of instrumental pop and orchestral pomp that occupies stylistic ground between John Tesh and Mannheim Steamroller. Guided by renowned producer Hugh Padgham (Sting, Phil Collins, et al.), Lanz recorded the album's 14 tracks live, laying down eight ensemble pieces (two uptempo, six subdued) and a high-minded, six-part work ("World at Peace") that involves a 35-piece orchestra. No new classics seem to be lurking here, though the propulsive "Dancing with Dionyscis" has its moments. By touching on themes of mythology and transcultural transformation, East of the Moon is intended less for bedroom candlelight and more for the internal flame Lanz enjoys rekindling within his spiritually inclined faithful listeners. Corny to some; a tonic to others. --Terry Wood

This long-awaited new release from pianist David Lanz is a delight from start to finish. From the opening strains of the exuberant "The Green Man" to the pure poetry of the closing track, "The Visitor", East of the Moon features a full spectrum of Lanz' playing and composing styles - and what a wonderful ride it is! The first seven tracks of the album are based on mythology and personal experiences, and have a more pop/rock feel than the six-part "World at Peace" which is more of a concerto for piano and orchestra. Producer Hugh Padgham suggested recording the album live rather than in layers, a proposal that was both daunting and exciting for Lanz. The resulting recording very successfully captures the freshness and spontaneity of a concert performance with the polish of a studio recording. Recorded in Great Britain in early 1999, Lanz included some great English studio musicians, and his frequent guest artist, Matthew Fisher from Procol Harum, appears on three tracks. Dave Heath's flute and piccolo add ebullience, as do Gerald Fahy's Ullieann pipes.
I absolutely love "The Green Man", a tribute to an ancient pagan symbol of birth and creativity. This joyful piece all but bubbles over. Dave Heath's piccolo adds a sprightly buoyance, and it's impossible to sit still while listening to this piece. "Dancing With Dionysos" is also an intoxicating romp (the mischievous glissando in the middle is a great touch!), full of fun and life. Lanz' original work hasn't been this upbeat since Skyline Firedance, and I welcome back this energetic side of his creativity."Chasing Aphrodite" is classic Lanz with mostly live musicians (as opposed to synth only), giving a warmth and richness often missing in sythnthesized accompaniments.

After listening through this CD for the first time, I could do nothing but sit in my chair in silence for a few seconds. David Lanz's work, in general, exudes a peaceful and vibrant energy in a multitude of music "types," and his latest is no exception. For example, the first three tracks on the CD, "The Green Man," "Dance with Dionysus," and "Chasing Aphrodite," all differ so much that perhaps only Lanz could have made the three work so well together. "Green Man" starts out the CD with a Celtic-ish theme, while "Dionysus" nearly jumps out of your sound system with its highly vibrant pop theme, and then it shifts to the utterly beautiful "Aphrodite," a romantic song with emotions not quite on the level of "Return to the Heart," but well-done nonetheless. I only found two problems with the CD. First, the orchestra (used in every piece), while adding definite pluses in songs such as "Declaration Overture," also detracts from Lanz' marvelous piano talent by overriding/replacing many notes on the corresponding solo piano pieces. Also, I would have loved to had "Sound of Wings" included on the album. Although the theme of that song varies somewhat from the generic themes of the album, it is such a beautiful song that its inclusion would have helped. For those that don't know, "Sound of Wings" is a piece that Lanz wrote for the orchestra recording for "East of the Moon" but never recorded, and so he released both the song (in MP3 format) and the sheet music on his website, and appears to never plan on officially releasing it on a CD. Other than that, it is an amazing work.Read more ›

This is not the David Lanz that Narada Lotus fans came to love and know. If you enjoyed the simple beauty of Cristofori's Dream, Heartsounds, Nightfall and Return to the Heart, this new CD by Lanz is a disappointment. Lanz's once intimate, sparkling and introspective piano is now lost to the pop and orchestral themes he has pursued on this release. The drums and rhythm section add to the misery of this album, failing to bring life to what are mostly unexciting piano pieces. Save your money, and instead check out "From the Heart" - the last great release from this new age pioneer.

Musical Genius David Lanz has created a CD which can hardly be described with mere words. You have to hear this powerful, passionate, breathtaking music for yourself. I was fortunate to be able to recently attend one of David's concerts where he performed much of the music on "East of the Moon" along with many of his other stunning pieces. The concert was an awesome experience. Hearing my favorite composer perform live and personally meeting him was an experience I will never forget. The next best thing to being at his concert is listening to this CD. The sound quality is unbelievable...you will be amazed! I cannot tell you how many times I've listened to this CD. It is music you never get tired of hearing...it only becomes more beautiful each time. Although all of his CD's are extraordinary, "East of the Moon" is David Lanz at his very best. This CD encompasses all of his musical styles. His talent and brilliant creativity knows no limit. BUY IT - YOU WILL LOVE IT. David, congratulations on your new CD. I predict a Grammy Award on this one.
