THE ANCIENT GREEK TORTOISE SHELL LYRE - Ancient Greek-Themed Album

"An Undying Musical Legacy!

In ancient Greek Classical Antiquity, the lyre was given a prominent pride of place. Michael Levy brings that era alive with his beautifully composed album. "The Golden Age of Pericles" is superbly performed. The fluid tones of the lyre create a certain magic in the atmosphere. The splendorous "The Garden of Epicurus" is an utterly pleasurable track with its running water sounds under the equally mellifluous sound of the lyre....loved it! The minor notes in "Rhetoric of the Sophists" bring middle-Eastern influences to mind. Another track that I found quite mesmerizing is "Death of Socrates", the single notes played with pauses in parts is wonderful to hear! I found this album simply superb in that not only has Levy brought an ancient instrument and its music back to life, but also an entire civilization through his music"

Amazon (USA) Review of "The Ancient Greek Tortoise Shell Lyre"

This album was inspired as a tribute to the great philosophers of ancient 
Greece, performed on an inspirationally authentic replica tortoise shell lyre, hand-made in modern Greece by Luthieros Ancient & Modern Music Instruments, with an actual tortoise shell for the resonator, an authentic replica 2500 year old carved bone plectrum, gut strings and actual goat horns for the arms of this magnificent musical instrument of the ancient Greek gods...
