4 stars I must admit that I bought the triple-CD hypnotized by the art-cover, a wonderful painting that is clearly inspired by the extraordinary italian 1971 TV movie of the Odyssey, featuring Irene Papas as Penelope and Bekim Femiou as Odysseus.... and then....after a little moment of disappointment due to the orrible plastic fat case of the work, I started listening to the terrifying 3 and half hours mass of music, of course it keeps more than two or three days to understand clearly what we have in our hands. And what we have is.... FANTASTIC SUITE-PROG-MUSIC ! It is very hard to decide which of the 3 cd's is better, so I will not bother you with this argument, the only thing I can say it's that each of the 9 composition is well orchestrated and performed, never bombastic and never fragile; maybe you could say that many of the musical moments of the operas are not really related to the Odysseys poem, but... enjoy the music instead ! 4,25 stars really...... and great value for the money, don't forget.
