Dream of the Orient - Concerto Köln/Sarband        (6 of 6 found this review helpful)
  Review by beardawgs February 21, 2005

This is a very interesting Ďeast meets westí concept disc, juxtaposition of authentic Turkish music and late 18th Century Central European popular belief of what that music might sound like incorporated in the Western musical tradition.
