I recently came across the music of David Arkenstone. He's been around for a very long time in musical terms, but I hadn't come across him before. He performs instrumentally rather than vocally, mostly in the "New Age" category, but with frequent excursions into other genres.
I was pointed to his Christmas album, "Winter Fantasy". I've chosen three tracks from it to illustrate his treatment of classic seasonal themes.
And, as a sample of his non-Christmas-themed music, here's his interpretation of some of the music from Peter Jackson's movie "The Hobbit".
His music is certainly easy listening. I'm not yet sure whether or not I'm a fan, but what I've heard so far doesn't discourage me. Certainly, I'd rather hear his music in stores instead of the current Christmas muzak trash!
