3 stars Aviva is a brandnew (2007) Russian musical project in which multi-instrumentalist Aviva is the prime mover, he plays Grand piano, keyboards, bass, samples and programmed drums and percussion. The instrumental music has strong echoes from bombastic keyboard driven prog like ELP and Japanese Gerard featuring a powerful Hammond sound, fluent piano runs and flashy synthesizer flights, very spectacular. The song The Valse At The End Of Times delivers a guest-musician on guitar, he gives a very powerful touch to the music with raw and propulsive guitar work. Some tracks sound quite experimental with soaring keyboards and weird voices. Although it's obvious that Aviva uses programmed drums and percussion, in my opinion he did a decent job with it, I have heard lots of worse examples! If you like keyboard driven prog some experimental excertions, this is an interesting CD! My rating 3,5 stars.
