~  GANDALF  ~ 

 

Autriche  -  progressif symphonique  -  ** 

 


Musique très calme, mélodique, symphonique classisante, planante,
mélancolique et émouvante, avec une ampleur symphonique remarquable,
des albums contrastés, riches d'envolées et d'accalmies,
L'imposante discographie voit la participation de nombreux musiciens,
avec entre autre  
Steve Hackett  et  Tracy Hitchings ( Landmarq ).
Des influences new-age et "world-music", font leurs apparitions à partir
de 1993, ce qui n'enlève rien à la beauté de sa musique.

A classer entre  Mike Oldfield ,  Anthony Phillips , et  Vangelis .
Superbe !!!
