Product Description

Deluxe CD/DVD edition includes bonus DVD. 2011 album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Night Of Hunters is a 21st century song-cycle, inspired by classical music from the last 400 years. Following the idea of the classical song-cycle, the all-new songs from Night Of Hunters tell an ongoing contemporary story. Its central character is a woman ending a long relationship, allowing the listener to follow her on a journey over the course of one night to explore complex musical and emotional themes With this album Tori Amos carries on the classical tradition of variations on a theme: taking the inspiration from works of other composers, not to copy or replace the originals, but to create an entirely new work out of them, which is also a tribute to the mastery of the original compositions. For the first time in years Amos has decided to place the piano once more at the centre of an album. All songs on Night Of Hunters were recorded entirely with acoustic instruments, focusing on the piano and an ensemble of strings and woodwinds.

From the Artist

In her own words: "I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself, allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us."

Format: Audio CD
I was attracted to this album out of curiosity on what kind of classical-pop crossovers Deutsche Grammophon is putting out these days -- apart from their string of Sting records. I was familiar with some of Tori Amos's music from the 1990s. Although I can't say I have followed her closely, I was intrigued by the idea of what she might do with "a modern song cycle" that explicitly calls on classical traditions.

I came away pretty impressed. No one should expect a classical album here. The songs are written with a popular sensibility -- this is not "Die Winterreise". There are two real links to the classical world. First is the instrumentation. The conservatory-trained Amos plays her Bösendorfer piano beautifully, and is accompanied on most tracks by a string and wind octet that features Andreas Ottensamer, the principle clarinetist of the Berlin Philharmonic. Other accompaniment is provided by Apollon Musagète string quartet. The musicianship is pretty serious.

The second link to classical music is that all the songs are variations on, or inspired by, classical pieces. Listening to this album and the original sources of inspiration back to back shows all the originals are very recognizable, but all with a new take or twist that successfully builds on the source to make it distinctively Tori Amos. The inspirations for the tracks on the album are as follows:

1. Shattering Sea (Alkan: Song of the Madwoman on the Sea-Shore, Prelude op. 31 no. 8)
2. SnowBlind (Granados: Añoranza - from 6 Pieces on Spanish Folksongs)
3. Battle of Trees (Satie: Gnossienne no. 1)
4. Fearlessness (Granados: Orientale from 12 Spanish Dances)
5. Cactus Practice (Chopin: Nocturne op. 9 no. 1)

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
2011 has been a troubling year for America and the West, but a good year for rock n' roll and popular music, especially for older women artists.

Marianne Faithfull released the critically-acclaimed 'Horses and High Heels,' her 18th studio album, and traveled throughout the United States and Europe supporting it; Stevie Nicks released her seventh solo album, 'In Your Dreams,' an album which, with 2001's 'Trouble in Shangri-La,' creatively revived her failing career against all odds after her 80s and 90s downturn; Blondie released their low-key and rather unadventurous ninth album, 'Panic of Girls,' and Kate Bush released an album of reworked songs, 'Director's Cut,' and will be releasing '50 Words For Snow,' her first recording of new material in six years, later this year.

In the midst of this activity comes 'Night of Hunters,' Tori Amos's 12th album of new material since 1992's 'Little Earthquakes.' Commissioned by the prestigious German record label Deutsche Grammophon and described as "a 21st century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years," the album features eleven tracks based on the compositions of Bach, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy, Mendelssohn, Mussorgsky, and others.

About the time of Amos's excellent second album, 'Under the Pink' (1994), her fans seemed to diverge into two camps: those who fairly embraced almost anything Amos released, and those who preferred what might be referred to as the 'woman at her piano' compositions such as 'Winter,' 'Baker, Baker,' 'Yes, Anastasia,' 'Cooling,' 'Lust,' 'Josephine,' and, later, 'Indian Summer,' 'Apollo's Frock,' 'Garlands,' and 'Snow Angel.

Night of Hunters by Tori Amos

If you are looking for Little Earthquakes, part 10, you can stop reading now.

But if you are even remotely interested to hear Tori breathe life into the old, dead bones of such masters as Frédéric Chopin, Franz Schubert or Johann Sebastian Bach, hear her add a beating heart, blood, flesh, feelings, human fear/love and consciousness into those bones, then buy this record and just sit back and listen to it.. I was lucky enough to hear NPR streaming it for a week before the release and I had to sit down in a comfortable position with headphones connected to my computer for 72 minutes (so I was held captive by 3 feet of cord) and just LISTEN. It is at once disturbing (especially the first track), playful and beyond beautiful. I cried as she touched my soul during the first listen. Edge of the Moon might be the most accessible track and the first track, Shattering Sea is probably the most difficult one to listen to...but it only lasts for 5 minutes, so you will be OK. I promise, and I actually love this song.

Since this is a 72 minute "song cycle" it is meant to be listened to in it's entirety in one listen. It's not background music...but if you HAVE to download one song just to get a taste, maybe try Job's Coffin if you like pop, Seven Sisters if you like classical and Edge of the Moon if you want eclectic. For those of you who want "classic Tori" download the title track. But I really recommend that you buy the whole thing and just listen to it with an open mind.

I also adore the way she used 2 young voices to voice a changeling fox/goose by her daughter Natashya Hawley and her niece Kelsey Dobbins as Fire Muse.

What does tori turn into during The Chase to survive?
I got the feeling Tori wasn't turning into anything, I thought Annabelle was making a point to Tori that everything in the world is a predator and prey at the same time, so there's nothing she can become to escape being the hunted. I don't think it was meant to be literal. Though I love the... Read More
