The ETHEReal String Project

by ETHEReal String Orchestra

epperj Hands down, this is my favorite album of the past year. The complex, beautiful string arrangements invoke the spirit Michael Nyman and other great composers. The eclectic song selection includes pieces which are often ignored (that was not the "Still Alive" I was expecting, and it is fantastic)! And I love the sublime addition of clarinet and piano to "Eternity~", which was my most played track of 2018. This is the pinnacle of VGM string albums and I can't wait to hear more from this group! Favorite track: Eternity ~ Memories of Light and Waves (from "Final Fantasy X-2").
