CD Review – Peaceful Journey: Music for Relaxation and Wellbeing, by Tron Syversen

Nordic composer and musician Tron Syversen sets the soul at ease with this soothing collection of music that, as the subtitle says, provides relaxation and wellbeing.

Syversen creates beautiful melodies and sonic textures with his piano and synthesizers, augmented by other musicians on acoustic guitar, English horn, violin, and cello. Singer Elin Lokken adds a touch of heaven with her angelic and reassuring wordless vocals. The result is musical paradise.

Although Syversen hails from and is based in Scandinavia and sometimes records in Italy, this album has a Greek/Mediterranean feel, giving it a sense of romantic escapism and making it the perfect mental getaway.

Fans of Vangelis and Yanni will enjoy this equally worthy recording.
