It contains interesting music... especially the first 3 CDs. Logos, the
first one, would be my favorite, I think.
The last two CDs are not really my cup of tea. IIRC, they are mostly
constituted of solo synth pieces, which are often a bit cheesy. The first
CDs have a more varied instrumentation and much more compelling atmospheres.
So, for me, it's not the holy grail some people have described but it's
still a worthwhile package.
Now, my turn for Wakhevitch questions: has anybody heard (the outrageously
expensive) "Etre Dieu" (which seems to be an opera he did with a libretto by
Dali)? What does it sound like? When was it composed? How does it compare
with the material in the Wakhevitch box?
