MUSICAL ADVENTURES IN TIME TRAVEL - Compilation Album

"Trans-Millennial Journey...

Michael Levy's works have accurately been described by iTunes (USA) as "tranquil, soothing, and hauntingly beautiful." His transcendent compositions in "Musical Adventures in Time Travel", which can hardly be more aptly titled, live up to that description and confront the listener with a world that is distant and alien, yet at the same time "familiar" in a deeply primordial sense. Prepare to be transported from your 21st-century surroundings and petty modern concerns...to a windswept rocky outcrop on a Mediterranean trading route -- or a mystical sandstone temple, lit by fire and imbued with the presence of gods long forgotten...."

David - Amazon (USA) Review


In conjunction with my earlier compilation album, "Ancient Landscapes", this second compilation album is a unique collection of some of the very best tracks from my my more recent albums of ancient lyre music.

ANCIENT LANDSCAPES - Compilation Album

"A Beautiful Minimalist Masterpiece...

This album will consume you and take you far away. You must at least listen to the samples available, it won't take you long to feel the effects of this music. If you're new to the music of Michael Levy, this is a great place to start, as it contains a taste from his various albums. Highly recommended"

AN ANCIENT LYRE - Compilation of Ancient Musical Themes

"Amazing, Wonderful, Beautiful...

Not only is this historically significant,the music is really soulful & moving. I consider this one of my best musical discoveries in 2010. Highly recommended!"

Steven Goodheart - iTunes Review (USA)  

This early compilation album features one of the widest variety of 'destinations' in my 'Musical Adventures in Time Travel' - evoking the music of ancient India with opening track, which features an improvisation for solo lyre in an exotic sitar tuning, my arrangement for solo lyre of the 3400 year old "Hurrian Hymn Text H6" from ancient Mesopotamia (the earliest surviving fragment of written music so far discovered which can be interpreted), evoking the music of ancient Egypt with my arrangements for solo lyre of a selection of traditional Egyptian folk songs from Port Said and an improvisation on an actual ancient Egyptian scale, as well as my first arrangements for solo lyre of some of the actual surviving music of ancient Greece...
