This is an amazing LP. Also great as a soother when flying with noise cancelling headphones - guaranteed stress free flight

"A Symphony Pathetique" bears a striking resemblance to Donnacha Costello's "Dry Retch"
Hard to believe that it's merely coincidence.

One of my favourite albums of 2011 ! Starts out with drawn out cello and violins for the intro and into a piano with long reverberation bass ivory key loveliness then into something that can only be orchestrated mellow madness as the sounds go into a near feedback frenzy.
The results are, almost inevitably, meditative and cinematic, but also, more unusually for music of this so-called ‘post-classical’ album, rich in melody and genuinely haunting, numinous atmosphere. Thus, tremulous, pensive opener and sometimes sending you over the edge.
Composed by two musicians at the height of their craft, the album reveals itself, thus far, as the apex of a limited genre still forming and as one of our finest contemporary acts of remembrance and ascension.
