“Orlando” was released as a limited edition in 1998 and it was immediately sold-out and remained one of the most praised and searched for (mini-) albums for Ataraxia! In 2016, ATARAXIA and TWILIGHT RECORDS introduce you to a digitally mastered new edition of this opus, inspired by the well-known character of Virginia Woolf’s novel. Orlando passes through several different historical ages, from Queen Elizabeth’s age to the 20th century acquiring the appearance of a young man, a maiden, and a woman… The dualism of the character is well exemplified in two tracks entitled with his/her name. The first one, “Orlando (… a female),” is a march with strong neoclassical influences, which leads to the more intimate atmosphere of the second track, “Orlando (… a male),” an aria built on complex guitar arpeggios. This album features also the peculiar, nocturnal and echoing ambiences of “Bonthrop,” the overture, which is gloomy, liquid and rarefied. “Shelmerdine” is a sensual ballad full of magic. The visionary charge of this album is emphasised in the closing track, “Elfine,” in which the voice becomes a crazy instrument able to create dissonances and leaving an impressive emotional impact.
