Time Travel Machine

I first heard of Michael Levy in the awesome "Podcast History of our World". What a treasure! If you have even the faintest interest in history you owe it to yourself to check out his incredible work. It's the closest one can come to owning a Time Travel Machine. Each tune conjures up images of the ancient world. It all comes to life. Pure Magic!

The epic poetry of the lyre

From the lullaby-esque pluckings of “Awe of the Aten” to the pulsing intensity of “The Battle of Thermoplyae,” Musical Adventures in Time Travel… moves its listeners from the biblical to the lyrical via the beautiful vibrations of the one of music’s most ancient instruments, the lyre. In his Michael Levy’s hands, this instrument becomes at times soft and playful, at others robust and powerful, but always arresting. Here the narrative strings speak as would a poet were playing them, and in fact even in place of the poet.

Michael Levy is the lyre’s contemporary virtuoso, a poet of the past whose words are the struck and plucked notes of his lyre. I would recommend this album to anyone who wants to hear the visceral beauty of sound stripped down to strings, music laid bare, beautiful.
