Transport your imagination
Let Michael Levy be your tour guide. Transport your imagination into the ancient past. Visit the temples of ancient Greece. The sea breeze tugs gently at your toga as the wind whistles through empty temple ruins. The sound of a replica lyre brings to life the history of a thousand years and you find yourself revisiting a past life. You are mute witness on the courts of the ancient past to what passed for everyday entertainment and inspirational sounds. Cherish this peek into a life with the ancients.
I don't recall how I discovered Michael Levy's work. However, when I did, it was a revelation.
His devotion to the older forms (and to the gods) is an inspiration. His work is haunting and human on a level that most artists today can only dream of achieving.
If you ever wondered what the music of the ancient Classical world sounded like, look no further. Michael Levy does a fantastic job at recreating this otherwise often lost and forgotten era in Western music. I would especially recommend his work to educators and anyone trying to set a scene at some point in the classical past.
