5 stars Focus with this disc made a music of a great subtlety. It's clearly symphonic prog but it does not sink at any time in excess. Quite to the contrary, arrangements are initially intended to emphasize melodies which are of a rare beauty. The musicians put their technical qualities at the service of the music. They do not play to show their individual talents but to express all the extent of the human emotions. Never repetitive this very ambitious disc avoids the trap of the claim by the grace of musicians inhabited by a common will to create a work which is likely to cross the times. It does not matter that this disc was recorded in the seventies, this music is not dated.Make a track by track desciption don't make sense. "Hamburger Concerto" is an extraordinary travel you have to listen in his globality.If you like your prog imaginative and melodic you must buy this CD. 5 stars, without a doubt. One of the ten masterpieces of the progressive rock, all confused times.
