Well,the Hovhaness cds are still playing here,although,to be quite honest,I'm not sure if I can honestly tell one from the other.& some of them are more like suites,than what I would regard as symphonies. Still,with sounds as mesmersingly hypnotic & gorgeously exotic as this coming through my headphones,who cares?!
I had a huge pile of Hovhaness cds half way up to the ceiling,a while back! Gradually,the more 'samey' sounding ones got carted off to the charity shop. I have about nine left,which I am very happy with,indeed! :)
I'm sure allot of hippies & new agers,out there,would love to get their mits on my Hovhaness cds! ;D But,they're not having 'em!! >:( ;D 'Mountains & Rivers without End',is a particularly evocatively titled one,that really does bring up images of mysterious monasteries on remote peaks.....and rivers,of course! A bit like a very sophisticated & genuinely imaginative version of one of those awful relaxation tapes (or cds,now!). Marvellous! My only complaint? Despite the title,it does come to an end!! :(
Still,there's always the repeat button! :)
