ALQUIMIA & RüDIGER GLEISBERG
Garden of Dreams
CD, BSC/Prudence, 2005
"Garden of Dreams" is a collaborative effort of the female singer Alquimia and German symphonic keyboarder Rüdiger Gleisberg (known from Solitaire and his solo-albums).
It’s a poetic rendered vehicle featuring angelic choirs and lots of classic string-arrangements in all eleven tracks. Sometimes, the music turns rather fairytale-like, as heard in "Fireflies of the Night", but it’s best described as fantasy pop which can be compared to the output of Adiemus and alike. I’m certain this music is too soft and semi-romantic for the ears of any serious electronic music fan.
