Review by Greger
3 stars The Hungarian composer Julius DOBOS started playing piano in 1976 at the age of five. His first album "Connecting Images" was a Nokia only release, and as far as I know this is his first official CD, released on the same label as AFTER CRYING and SOLARIS: Periferic label. His music is melodic and movie soundtrack-like and it ranges between beautiful and quiet to bombastic. It's a blend of classical, electronic, ethnic and symphonic music. There are reminiscences to the Hungarian composer Attila HÉGER (aka under the pseudonym Al NORDER and LAREN D'OR), MIKE OLDFIELD, VANGELIS and John WILLIAMS. "Mountain Flying" was broadcasted on Hungarian radio and television in 1995. The CD was recorded in 1999 with the 80-piece North Hungarian Symphony Orchestra, the 50-voice Monteverdi Choir, and several guest musicians including the Grammy Award winner Martha Sebestyén. This is definitely worth checking out if you're into soundtrack-like electronic and symphonic music.

3 stars Apparently Julius is well-known in Hungary for his compositions, and this recording with the North Hungarian Symphony Orchestra plus extra musicians, the Budapest Monteverdi Choir and Marta Sebastyen (the latter was on 'The English Patient' soundtrack), is a revised version of his first collection of demos, which were all performed on a synthesiser.

I don't listen to nearly as much classical music as I should, so in all honesty find that I can't really review it. I know I like it, with the melodies and interplay between synths and traditional orchestra working well, and finding that it is very easy to listen to (as opposed to easy-listening).

I already feel that this album is going to be one of the ge ... (read more)

5 stars Mountain Flying is one of my few CDs that I listen to over and over again and find new details every time. It's even better than Julius Dobos' Connecting Images which was also a masterpiece. Jurriaan Hage says: "A perfect marriage between classical music and electronic music in the style of Vang ... (read more)
