It’s such a relief that music like this still exists. It’s such a relief that musicians like David Arkenstone still have that hunger to create great moments of musical reverie and it truly seems that the genre of New Age is making a massive full-on comeback. At the head of the riders that forge across this musical plain, is none other than Arkenstone on his horse of musical mastery, blissful peace and partnered with a fair measure of power and grace by his side.
The Fairy Garden has re-established Arkenstone as the leader of symphonic new age styled music. If you have followed David’s long and prestigious career, then this album I am sure will be entering your collection post haste. If, however, you are new to his music, then where have you been? It’s time to rapidly catch up and The Fairy Garden is the perfect album to do so. All hail, the master of the grand soundscape, Arkenstone is back with an album that has to be worthy of many accolades and awards.
