    Personnel: Andreas Vollenweider (harp); Max Lasser (strings); Christoph Stiefel (keyboards); Walter Keiser (drums); Peoro Haldemann (bells); Matthias Ziegler (wind). Audio Remasterer: Andreas Vollenweider. Recording information: Sinus Studios, Bern Switzerland (1986). Arranger: Andreas Vollenweider. Harpist/composer Andreas Vollenweider was one of the key figures in the early New Age genre, and his electric harp, which can range in feel from a stately classical approach to snappy syncopation to lush ambient textures, is the defining aspect of his work. DOWN TO THE MOON remains one of Vollenweider's best and best-loved albums, combining his penchant for jazzy ethnic fusion with delicate, spectral atmospherics that go well with the album's lunar theme. The title track, for example, sends the listener into orbit with its chiming, lightheaded sparkle of sound. Synthesizer, flute, guitar, and auxiliary percussion flesh out the unique sound of DOWN TO THE MOON. "Quiet Observer" has a pensive air, with a mournful woodwind accompaniment, while "Night Fire Dance" chugs along like a dance track from outer space. But all the selections are unified by an overarching sonic theme and the rich sound of Vollenweider's harp. Soothing, transporting, yet always musically intriguing, DOWN TO THE MOON earned a Grammy for Vollenweider in 1987.
