Music of the spheres by Mike Oldfield( Recording )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mike Oldfield has always been famed for his unconventional approach to music. Throughout his career he has consistently broken musical boundaries, and with Music of the Spheres he continues to do so. Taking influences from Holst and Rachmaninov as much as Steve Reich or William Orbit, this piece is classical in nature, but yet is also immediately identifiable as classic Mike Oldfield. Using a full concert orchestra and choir, and with solo parts from Mike himself on guitar, legendary soprano Hayley Westenra and renowned pianist Lang Lang, this is a work with huge emotional and musical scope. The title of the piece is a reference to something that Mike feels strongly: that all music should aim to represent the spriritual, or otherworldly elements of life: something beyond the mundane and everyday. In this he has clearly succeeded. Music of the Spheres is by turns epic, tender, mournful and triumphant. It is the work of a composer who above all can make beautiful and substantial music, regardless of genre or instrumentation

Two sides : the very best of Mike Oldfield by Mike Oldfield( Recording )

10 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mike Oldfields Musik ist unvergleichlich stimmungsvoll, spirituell, atmosphärisch und sinnlich ... dass er eine absolute britische Ikone ist, steht da völlig ausser Frage. 'Two Sides' ist eine von Mike persönlich zusammengestellte Retrospektive. Der Autodidakt und Multi-Instrumentalist, Produzent und Komponist hat im Laufe seiner Karriere mit einer Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Musikstile gearbeitet - von Folk und Progressive Rock bis Jazz, Electronic, Ambient, New Age, World, Pop und sogar Disco. So spiegelt sich auch hier eine breite Palette seiner Arbeit wider: Mit CD 1 entführt er uns in den esoterischen, experimentellen Teil seines Universums und auf CD 2 finden sich seine populärsten Songs und Hitsingles.(jpc)
