On their fifth album, the duo of singer/guitarist Markus Sieber and singer/harpist/keyboardist Angelika Baumbach present songs of love and longing.
In addition to original lyrics, the recordings also feature the poetry of Rumi and Kahlil Gibran, resulting in musical ruminations that go well beyond the simple concept of love to ponder its deeper philosophical and psychological underpinnings.
Sieber and Baumbach literally make beautiful music together, with Baumbach’s angelic voice blending perfectly with Sieber’s vocals, which are as soft as his plush guitar notes.
The duo receive solid studio support from a number of fine world-class musicians playing trumpet, cello, violin, viola, percussion, keyboards, bass, electric guitar, ukulele, and tambour.
This is a pleasant CD for anyone who likes gentle love songs that stimulate the intellect as well as touch the heart.
