Stereophile 2008 Record to Die For!

Lars Danielsson does not just play bass, but he also - like his main influence, Claus Ogerman - uses the myriad tone colors of a symphony orchestra to great effect. With the bass as the central pivot and the dazzling grandeur of the orchestra, Danielsson leads one here through the most varied sound worlds.

The quiet expressiveness of the Estonian composer Arvo Part formed the inspiration for "Shimmering", a "Meditation in flat Minor". Memories of the Alhambra, the most famous Moorish palace, are represented in "Granada", written for solo bass, solo cello and orchestra, while he translates "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell into a glamorously eloquent version for his deep voiced instrument.

In "Bird Through The Wall", a rainforest meditation, Danielsson also plays marimba, providing yet another color to this already wide-ranging palette. "Cornelia", originally commissioned by the Metropole Orchestra in Holland for bass and orchestra, could be considered the "most classical" composition on this SACD, while the bonus track "Asnah" reflects the most contemporary influences - with cello loops, sampled sounds, a spare Nordic trumpet sound and vocal percussion. Featuring the Danish Radio Concert Orchestra.
