About this album
Sleepless in Dresden is a long, peaceful and relaxing track inspired by the Aria part of J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations. The legend has it that Bach composed the mentioned variations to Count Keiserling, the former Russian ambassador of Saxony, who suffered from insomnia and thereby ordered from Bach some peaceful clavier pieces to be played in nighttime by his private musician, Johann Gottleib Goldberg.
The beautiful polyphonic interplay of Lena Selyanina's piano improvisations together with deep and calm organs, starlike high bells and other instrumentation invite the listener to embrace the cosmic beauty of starry heavens and to have a good, deep rest in the tender vibrations of cosmic love.
A 24bit/88.2kHz audiophile edition of the album is available as a torrent on Mininova.
