Stephan Micus - Till The End Of Time

OMG look at how young and virile Stephan Micus looks here bro! Even his voice is less raspy and softer. This is the last album outside of ECM and it's a short but gorgeous album, dominated by table harps and zithers that provide that trademark sacred quality of his music. What is surprising is the extensive use of classical guitar, which is very rarely heard in his music, perhaps only as its Spanish variations. Thereby this album has a more traditionally folk and "European" than the majority of his oeuvre. First released in 1978 on Japo Records, this is the 2001 ECM cd reissue.
