" ...Chalhoub has embarked on what promises to be a provocative journey through a new Landscape" (The Times)
When I first heard Claude's music I was immediately impressed by the
force and passion of his musical personality. His violin playing had that larger than life, in
your face, quality that great singers have and I was sold on the idea of us working together. (Michael Brook)
"The beauty of Claude Chalhoub's music is
that it doesnt sound "new" at all. It sounds familiar, even if you have never listened to Arabic music (or classical music) at all. As if it had always been there. It's as natural as breathing.
And that's what great art is all about – making the difficult seem easy."
