3 stars Well there are a few defects within this Brazilian album of symphonic instrumental new-prog, but at the end this South American ensemble (classical music oriented) is good: first of all the use of poor vintage synthesizers is a bit disappointing, because the orchestrations are based upon a simple Korg syntheziser and this is not enough to make the mini-suites quite lush...nevertheless the classic approach is very interesting, above all the direct interplay between the violin and the keyboards, which is remarkable. The female keyboardist is well prepared, but a bit forced in this role, and some music passages are not convincing anymore, as long as his approach is that one of a student at the Music Academy. Except on this opinion, the other music features typical of a classic suite are well introduced by the band and Elisa Wiermann is conscious enough.

The harmonic solutions are a bit repetitive, but the output is very original!!

Make your own choice!!
