All the dreamy qualities needed to carry you to the faraway lands of the mysterious Gandalf.” —Michael Debbage
Music being played from the very depth of the heart sometimes reflects a glimpse of the secret paradise within all of us, the boundless and eternal Lotus Land.
Taking full advantage of his 30 years experience crafting music in harmony with the rhythm of nature, Gandalf presents a grand celebration in tribute “to the wonderful variety and beauty of the universe" with Earthsong and Stardance. Masterfully blending his customary sounds with the Corso Wien Orchestra and a Sanskrit choir, the whole truly blurs the boundaries between earth and the stars.
Gandalf’s music is inspired by the beauty of nature and by the wisdom and myths of various cultures. Magician of sounds and painter of musical landscapes, he conjures moods and magical moments that point to other realities behind the scenes in our fast-paced modern world. Austrian born Gandalf blends acoustic, electronic and spherical sounds and weaves folk elements into a symphonic structure to create his unmistakable and unique musical style.
As in Frank Steiner, Jr.’s enormously successful I Ching Symphony, Touching Silk is a lavish production. Balanced with dynamic rhythms and exquisitely poetic passages, this is music on a grand scale, filled with exotic sounds spanning the horizon from east to west. Touching Silk is a joyful cleanser, a break from our sometimes harsh world into one that is rich in fantasy and beauty.
“Danny Wright is a warmly romantic composer and an exquisite pianist with the gentlest, most expressive hands on the keys. His graceful compositions offer a tender release from the tensions of the day. He often composes songs as gifts to friends or to help support a worthy cause. It’s clear that his heart and hands are directly connected, as the music he makes provides much solace to an aching heart.” —Steve Ryals, New Age Music Reviewer
