ANDREAS VOLLENWEIDER hat zu seinem ersten Roman in sich ruhende Tracks eingespielt

"Air" from 2009 was his last album release so far. After that it became quiet around the harpist, who - quite unusual for this instrument - even entered the US charts in the eighties. The Swiss nature lover with the angel hair never really could be classified. If you put him in the New Age range in the States, his incredibly positive, almost exclusively instrumental music always seemed too versatile and demanding for such a categorization and rather covers a range between world music, pop, jazz and neo-classic. Now he is back with the contemplative disc "Quiet Places", which is influenced by his novel "Im Spiegel der Venus".
