Music of Serenity
The good recording makes this album consistent and balanced with excellent sound quality across all tracks. You can hear excellent deep bass tones as best as can be achieved from listening to an LP.

Richard Harvey: Xiao, Bansri, Panpipes, Soprano Saxophone, Clarinet, Mandolin, Psaltery, Recorders, Irish Whistles, Bawu, Percussion
Executive Producer: Hucky Eichelmann for AMI Records
Classical guitarist Hucky Eichelmann has never been on better form and the silken sounds of his guitar blend beautifully with Harvey’s large array of Bamboo flutes, pan pipes, Irish whistles and ocarinas. This collection of the two vastly experienced performers emphasises the serenity of music and how, across centuries and nations music can create calmness and evoke the beauty of nature. From Ecuador to Korea and spanning 6 centuries Silk and Bamboo is a fitting collaboration for Hucky and Harvey, who between them have made music with Ravi Shankar, Sir Paul McCartney, John Williams and Elvis Costello. Prepare yourself for beautiful music, brilliantly played and perfectly recorded.
