Ataraxia : Orlando - MCD Ataraxia : Orlando - MCD  Ref: 21719 «Orlando» was released as a limited edition in 1998 and it was immediately sold-out and remained one of the most praised and searched for (mini-) albums for Ataraxia!

In 2016, ATARAXIA and TWLIGHT RECORDS introduce you to a digitally mastered new edition of this opus, inspired by the well-known character of Virginia Woolf's novel. Orlando passes through several different historical ages, from Queen Elisabeth age to the XXth century acquiring the appearance of a young man, a maiden, and a woman.. The dualism of the character is well exemplified in two tracks entitled with his/her name. The first one, «Orlando (… a female)», is a march with strong neoclassical influences, which leads to the more intimate atmosphere of the second track, «Orlando (… a male)», an aria built on complex guitar arpeggios. This album features also the peculiar, nocturnal and echoing ambiences of «Bonthrop», the overture, which is gloomy, liquid and rarefied. “Shelmerdine” is a sensual ballad full og magic. The visionary charge of this album is emphasised in the closing track, «Elfine», in which the voice becomes a crazy instrument able to create dissonances and leaving an impressive emotional impact.

Tracks : 01 Bonthrop 02 Orlando, a Female 03 Orlando, a Male 04 Shelmerdine 05 Elfine
