Hristo Vitchev / Weber Iago: Heartmony Track review of "Prelude to Crepuscular Rays/Crepuscular Rays"

How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Guitarist Hristo Vitchev is a musician of a rare type: one who makes music composition sound easy. As evidenced by his intricately complex The Perperikon Suite (First Orbit Sounds, 2011), it isn't as easy as it seems. On Heartmony, Vitchev teams with his regular collaborator, pianist Weber Iago, for a suite of duets that are as challenging as they are sumptuous and beautiful.

"Prelude to Crepuscular Rays/Crepuscular Rays" does not so much blur the genre lines between jazz, world and new age as render such categorization inconsequential. It is music for music's sake, delivered with quiet, even delicate, aplomb that can serve as ambient music, or melody fully engaged. Vitchev and Iago reveal the intimacy of their musical vision through the hand-in-glove simpatico they share. Vitchev's gentle guitar tone melds with Iago's light, percussive playing, making one golden tone. With "Prelude to Crepuscular Rays/Crepuscular Rays," potential goes kinetic in an organized cascade of harmony and melody.
