The concept album “Adonai”, originally created for theatre, is Robert’s evocative sonic telling of the Easter Story and a remarkable man from a human point of view. Assembled of grand orchestral soundscapes, vocal textures, guitar and piano, the album unmistakeably reveals a new side of Robert’s music.
The 17 highly visual tracks actually contain a deep sense of reflection and (com)passion, offering lush symphonic outings next to rhythmic, tribal-infused pieces and reflective, intimate miniatures.
Opening and ending with furious thunder and lightning, the emotionally laden, beautifully rendered religious soundworlds between them make this album something special.
Heaven opens its doors on “Transfiguration”, after which the religious experience deepens even further in the following tracks before heaven’s gate opens a second time on “Crucifixion”.
The 62-minute “Adonai” is a religious symphonic soundtrack hymn which I would have loved to see with the powerful piece of theatre it was originally created for.
P.S. The album is available both as cd and digital download.
