Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
- A mid-price re-issue of the long-deleted Al Kindi longbox set, now in CD-sized packaging, with singers Sabri Moudallal and Omar Sarmini.
"In this sumptuous city in northern Syria, a small palace that has constantly been added to down the centuries beneath the dome of the echoing central room, amongst the carpets and cushions with the light filtering delicately through, at the crossroads of the famous silk routes, the Al-Kindi Ensemble - four instruments (the qânûn, the nay, the ûd and the riqq), two singers and two choristers - will open up a dialogue here, under the dream-like leadership of Julien Jalal Eddine Weiss, questioning each other, moving apart, converging, then fading away so as to let the voices of silence ring out.
The "Aleppian Music Room" is the mysterious and pure distillation of centuries, clothed in curiously modem form."
