TANGERINE DREAM: Das Romantische Opfer (2008)

Updated: Sep 4, 2021

It's sweet, romantic and very close to the latest Nagasaki series, but it's really short...

Distributed during the Lorelei concert on July 18th, 2008, DAS ROMANTISCHE OPFER is the 3rd Cup Disc. A limited edition (so not a real Cup Disc?) that sells for the price of a Cup Disc... which initially promised a minimum of 30 minutes of music... Well, it's Edgar and that's okay! (or isn't it?)

Let's talk about music now. It's beautiful. It's even very beautiful. A melancholic Edgar Froese who starts the music with a strange lament on a wavering rhythm. Soaked in the vapors of Tangram, Das Romantische Opfer is a contemporary tale with the mermaids of Ulysses. A nice musical fable that evolves on a floating synth with vaporous waves and nuanced orchestrations. Some good nervous percussions contradict the softness of the movement, while Das Romantische Opfer builts a crescendo towards a more austere movement before sinking into the soft reveries of mermaids wiggling on fine percussions, a good guitar playing and a fluty mellotron. All this before giving way to a sweet six-string solo from old Edgar Froese. It's sweet, romantic and very close to the latest Tangerine Dream's Nagasaki series. But it remains a very short Cup Disc!
