这个专辑的演奏都比较平淡。推荐第六首Pray for the Future
The Los Angeles Symphonic Orchestra covers Queen Millennia. You also can find the vocal version of Angel Queen by Dara Sedaka (Guitar: Steve Lukather, Synthesizer: Kitaro, Background vocals: Richard Page & Steve George). The album was released in 1982 on LP and MC only, so no official CD version exist
洛杉矶交响乐团演奏的《千年女王》。另外可找到Dara Sedaka的声乐版本《Angel Queen》。专辑于1982年仅以LP和MC的形式发行，因此没有官方CD存在。
Masanori Takahashi, better known as Kitaro, is a Japanese new age musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist.
Kitaro’s various sound collaborations and resonant, multi-textured compositions truly defy the constraints of any genre. The Grammy and Golden Globe Award-Winning Kitaro has achieved global acclaim over a more than three decade long career with a signature sound and a pioneering fusion of cultures, techniques and spheres of consciousness that are truly his own.
Kitaro’s latest project, Impressions of the West Lake is a modern day opera conceived and directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Zhang Yimou (Hero, Curse of the Golden Flower), the visionary artist behind the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The production is highlighted by music composed by Kitaro.
Perhaps the single most significant collaboration on Impressions of the West Lake is between Zhang and the opera’s composer, Kitaro. This pairing of East-meets-East is a rare combination of two artists at the peak of their creative talents. The opera also marks a reunion for Kitaro and music arranger Randy Miller, the pair’s first effort together since the Golden Globe-winning soundtrack to Oliver Stone’s 1993 film Heaven and Earth.
