If you’re a big fan of the Dutch band Focus, you might be intrigued by the solo work of bandmember keyboardist and virtuoso on the flute Thijs Van Leer. The album includes musical references to Bach in some numbers, and shows of Van Leer‘s classical training and showcases his talent as a flute player and it also shows his remarkable sense of style and form. The album also features conductor and arranger Rogier van Otterloo, who came up with the truly lush orchestral backgrounds in which a prominent part is sung by soprano Letty de Jong. This is a great album of relaxing music, a mixture of original material that was better known in rock and recorded by Focus, together with classical items.
