CD Review:

Music CD Review by Taiwan Fun introduces former Riverdance flutist, Ron Korb and his album 'Celtic Heartland'. Ron Korb - 'Celtic Heartland'

The music on this instrumental CD is reminiscent of Riverdance. This is no coincidence, however, as the album's composer and main flutist, Ron Korb, is a former member of that group. The compositions are mainly Celtic with Middle Eastern textures and rhythms mixed in. The result is a very unique sound experience; one example is 'Medieval East' which combines diverse instruments such as the saz from Turkey and the Celtic harp. While most of the album is quite mellow, some selections such as, 'Night of the Long Shadows' and 'Harvest Jig'are heavy on the fiddle, inspiring you to get up and dance. The rich variety of instruments conjures up images of exotic places, making this album a great escape from everyday pressures.
