Capt. Jacques-Yves Cousteau spent his life sharing his passion for the magnificence and beauty of the whales, dolphins and all the life of the sea, and his life is powerful testimony to the difference one person can make in the world. Capt. Cousteau died in 1998, but you can join with Real Music and world class musicians to help keep his dream alive. From each U.S. purchase of Cousteauís Dream, approximately $2.50* will be donated by Real Musicís non-profit EarthSea Institute to The Cousteau Society and organizations with similar goals of protecting and preserving the earth and its inhabitants. Ranging from tribal to operatic, poignant to passionate, Cousteauís Dream is a musical voyage of hope and inspiration, tribute to one who cared and acted upon that caring. Featuring Vangelis, Yanni, Danny Wright, 2002, Aria, Kevin Kern, Tim Wheater, Michael HoppÈ, Kitaro, Kamal, Richard Burmer and Frederic Delarue. --Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione fuori stampa o non disponibile di questo titolo.

There certainly is, however, an overall effect created by this album that I think very accurately captures the mood that was intended. The inclusion of waves gently caressing the shore and the magnificent vocal exchange of the whales conveys the message and feeling that Jacques Cousteau always tried to capture with his films. "Cousteau's Dream" creates a sense of the tranquility that exists beneath the waves of the ocean with the tracks by Vangelis, Yanni, Kamal and Frederic Delarue. But the life and magnificence of all the ocean creatures can be felt through operatic vocals featured on "Un Bel Di" and "Lachrymosa."
If you're buying an album to have strictly as background music that you really don't want to listen to and only sort of want to hear, you may not want this one. But if you want an album that features some of the strongest tracks by some of New Age music's greatest artists, this is the one for you. And with $2.50 from the sale of each album going to The Cousteau Society, you can feel entirely guilt-free for investing in this treasure.
Why is Kenny G's "Dying Young" theme on this album? Music-lovers beware.
The 2 short Vangelis tracks (from the soundtrack of 1492:Conquest of Paradise) are harmonically more interesting than the companion tracks. However the track "Eternity" did not seem to fit a Cousteau/Aquatic theme. It would have been more fitting to use some of his music from the album "Oceanic" (heck - buy that album and send a few bucks to the Earthsea Institute) or to publish some of the unreleased music Vangelis created for early Cousteau documentaries.
