3 stars Marco Antonio Araujo´s third album is a lot different from his previous two. This is really classical chamber music and, in this field, very good. The original record had only two tracks (each for one side of the vinyl LP, Fantasia Nº 2 (Romance) on side A and Fantasia Nº 3 (Folhas Mortas) on side B. Just classical guitar, two cellos and a flute.

On the CD reissue someone must have thought this work to be too radical classical music for his taste and decided to put three bonus tracks BEFORE the main course. Those are really alternative versions of some Araújo´s previously released songs with different arrangements. On those tracks he is, as usual, backed by his electric group Mantra (which included his brother Alexandre on lead guitar).

A very good work indeed, showing off Araujo´s skills as classical songwriter for chamber music, but has nothing to do with his early releases nor with his follow up Lucas. While those three CDs are prog music wiht lots of classical influences, Entre Um Silêncio e Outro IS classical music in the most radical sense of the word. If you like this kind of music, go for it.

If PA was a classical music site the rating would be four stars at least. For the average prog lover this music may be a bit too radical, save for the bonus tracks, which shows interesting alternative arrangements of some of his earlier stuff. In PA 3 stars in all should be more fitting, I guess. Good, but definitly not his essential work.
