Finally available again – one of the most ‘classic’ albums by ATARAXIA, originally released in 2004 on the Cold Meat Industry-side label 'Cruel Moon International'. This digitally mastered new digipak edition was first released in 2010 on Twilight, but was sold out and deleted for many years. Saphir is inspired by the magical, symbolic and mystic nature of gardens. Gardens of all ages linked to different geographic areas (the hanging gardens of Babylon, the Arabian gardens, the medieval hortus conclusum, the zen gardens and the English romantic gardens) have been the starting point of Ataraxia’s musical research. Music is rich and nuanced. Classic and flamenco guitars, romantic pianos, pads of atmospheric keyboards, noble sonatas, epic tunes, rich vocal broderies and some eastern and classic percussions (from darbouka, to bendhir, frame-drums, timpani, udu, cymbals and bells) played by the Riccardo Spaggiari, appearing for the very first time in an Ataraxia’s album, are the ingredients of this opus.
