Discovery: Pascal Holper

Austrian composer Pascal Holper brings a haunting beauty to these pages, due to latest release, Aphelion.

By Jane Howkins

Aphelion is beautiful from the start, opening with some glorious strings, contributing greatly to the atmosphere of the piece. Occasionally they dip down, taking the music in a quieter direction, before building back up again. These dynamic changes really help to amplify the haunting nature the track has, making for something incredibly evocative and thought-provoking. The music rises up to a wonderful crescendo, marking Pascal Holper as a composer not to be overlooked! This is for all your classical music fans!
