The enchanting opening tracks of Mystery of Light feature harpsichord, recorder and harp in a chamber music motif displaying a pronounced Renaissance and Baroque influence. Flute, piano and classical strings weave throughout and the presence of a solo cello enhances the album's sensation of calm and restfulness. Combining Renaissance musical motifs (violins and harp) with delicate bells enhanced by sumptuous chorals creates an overall evocation of ethereal beauty transporting you to another age.
Flutes, Recorder, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Viola de Gamba, Piano, Synthesizers, Santur and Drums.
With MYSTERY OF LIGHT, relaxation music pioneer Deuter presents a multi-themed soundscape that pairs his characteristic healing music sounds with classical motifs. The album begins with a four part suite of songs that have a medieval, baroque-tinged sound, which blend chamber music instruments like harps, flutes and harpsichord with synthesizers to create a soothing stroll into the past.
Deuter then fluidly moves towards a more ethereal, dreamy approach with the next few cuts, "Memories of An Angel," "The Sun Enters the River" and "The Fawn Drinks the Sun," which Deuter fans will identify with. The final leg of the album melds the two approaches, resulting songs like "Enchanted Summer Night," with its twinkly bells that call to mind a hidden fairy glade, to uplifting strains of "Celestial Meadows." MYSTERY OF LIGHT blends whimsy with serenity, offering a melodic fantasia that will warm your heart.

His creations incorporate a lightness of spirit, a depth of vision and a musical medley of East and West.
Deuter himself is a product of both East and West, born in 1945, in a small village of post-war Germany. As a child, he learned flute and taught himself guitar and harmonica.

Review: The music of multi-instrumentalist Deuter shines on this album of original music spanning centuries. We are transported to a Renaissance drawing room in the first four pieces with Renaissance and Baroque influence, featuring harpsichord, recorder and harp. In Memories of an Angel, Deuter returns to his piano-based New Age style with touches of synthesizer. The Sun Enters the River, with solo cello, conveys a solemn and reflective mood. The Fawn Drinks the Sun rejoices in nature's splendor with abundant twinkling bells creating a magical atmosphere. The celebration continues in Enchanted Summer Night, where harp and violins join joyful bells. On The Heron Dreams we return to the Renaissance/Baroque theme with a piece for harp, cello and flute. The Laughing Waters is a festive dance of Native American flutes, Appalachian dulcimer and pan-African tuned percussion. The lush instrumentation of Celestial Meadows and cosmic keyboards of Elysian Fields bring Mystery of Light to a luminous conclusion. This is the music of your dreams by one of the planet's most talented artists.
