Cristal is an excellent and original recording. This is a disc that is fresh and exciting. Its brilliance comes through from the first piece right through to the last. Cristal, subtitled "Glass Music Through the Ages," is a unique recording that features Linda Ronstadt with glass virtuoso Dennis James. This recording showcases a variety of different moods, but the glass harmonica and the crystal baschet have lush and serenely sweet sounds that bring the pieces to life while also letting them settle in the background. Cristal features a variety of performers, including the Emerson String Quartet and Ruth Ann Swenson. The recording also features original glass music by Mozart, Beethoven, C.P.E. Bach, and Purcell. For fans of ethereal music, particularly space and new age music, this is an excellent find. Fans of classical and more mainstream music will also find this recording to be exceptionally refreshing. Overall, this is a fantastic work and one that belongs in any music lover's collection.
