Anne-Nurmi

Elodia-1999:
Act 1

The album opens with 'Am Ende der Stille' [at the end of silence], a long instrumental piece, in this one you can hear the Mozart influence in this band, this one describes The slow disruption of love overwhelmed by harmony. Next is 'Alleine zu Zweit' [together alone], a beautiful song, you'll find trying to hum the chorus even if you don't know German! This one is followed by the powerful 'Halt mich' [hold me], the strings and flutes describes a desperate attempt to breathe new life into the past, to regain what have been lost. The only English song 'The Turning Point' is next, Anne Nurmi has a very striking accent, which fits perfect in this song that recounts these days that have been lost in a mood of intimacy and leads finally to the inevitable events of the second act. 
Act 2
'Ich verlasse heut' dein Herz' [I take today leave of your heart], is an escalating, emotional piece that evolves into a really heavy song. This one describes almost indulgently the emotional separation that is experienced in the touching, followed by the act of separation itself, which take place on the different levels of the somewhat mysterious 'Dich zu toten fiel mir schwer' [killing you was hard], a song with a heavy riffing in the middle part. 
Act 3
The Opera reaches it's climax when the firsts strings announces the arrival of the requiem 'Sanctus', this one clocks around 14 minutes, but it has all the elements to make it a perfect song, choral piece, strings, winds, harsh parts, softer parts, nice soloing, just perfect. 'Am Ende stehen wir zwei' [at the end, there are the two of us] wraps things and tells of a farewell full of hope.
