improvisational and meditative. Both words do a wonderful job of characterizing her sonic signature. The harp may convey a wealth
of emotions if treated with the respect the instrument deserves. This is not something a person picks up in high school; battling practice
for a while and then gives up. The harp requires a full commitment in order to capture its alluring sonic qualities. Von Schothorst has
apparently committed herself full-time to her instrument, as the sounds on I am a Dreamer are exquisite. The tonality here is one of
relaxation and, as she puts it herself: Meditative. The title track displays both her control and amazing ability to slow things down or
speed them up while retaining tranquil musical energy. "Anticipation" and "Winter" are also great examples of this skill set. This music
could be at home in television and film soundtracks or a yoga retreat. Fans of the Cyber Octave label, or perhaps even Tom Vedvik
should check out this record. MM

“I am a dreamer” is a seven-track improvisational acoustic album from talented Dutch harpist Anne van Schothorst. Anne’s
compositions are captivating and relaxing. The listener can immediately tell that she pours her heart and soul into these compositions
and that she is one with her harp. The high point of this album is that it is entirely improvisational, enabling Anne to take a theme, or a
previously composed piece of music, turn it on its head and make it uniquely hers. Anne successfully conveys the emotions of each
song solely through the harp, and the songs on “I am a dreamer” take the listener into a dreamlike state, perfect for introspection,
meditation and outright relaxation. This album is also well-produced and sounds great, with each note clear and crisp. “Snowwhite
bird” opens the album with beautiful high notes and introduces the listener to Anne’s sheer talent. “Bonjour tristesse,” literally “hello
sadness,” provokes the emotion through the vibration of the harp strings. “I am a dreamer” is filled with great classical and
improvisational harp compositions from Anne van Schothorst with great calming effects. Fans of talented, relaxing harp progressions
and classical music, will find this album to be a nice addition.

Anne van Schothorst has recorded a sympathetic CD last year. Original music and improvisations give a meditative atmosphere.
The CD is related to the New Age music style. It brings simple repetitive melodies, sometime even mystical. The motives are like
mantras. Sound of nature give the CD a tone of reflection and meditation. The CD of Anne van Schothorst offers a small hour
pleasant and relaxing harp music.
