A frank and candid glimpse into the early life of the maturing poet. Taken together, Novalis (3) - Lebt! (Live) (CD), and read in conjunction with the fragments written before, during, and shortly after this period of time, the journal and letters shed light on a process of self-discovery during which Hardenberg became convinced of his poetic vocation and acknowledged this conviction in an act of self-christening, as the poet Novalis.
Here we glimpse the inner workings of a now legendary event: the transformation of the mining student Friedrich von Hardenberg into the romantic poet Novalis.
The idea to gather letters and supporting biographical material from precisely this period and unite them into a single volume is both a masterly and welcome enterprise. He is the author of Miko, Little Hunter of the North. Novalis is best known in history as the poet of early German Romanticism.
Universally acclaimed as a poetic genius for such works as Hymns to the Night and the unfinished novel Heinrich von Ofterdingen, he especially favored the fragment form for his philosophical meditations.
The latter reach their climax in this volume, his astonishing plan for a universal science. David W. Other Formats: Paperback.

Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Side two has two eight minute songs that are both mainly instrumental. I don't know what to write more about this album. It isn't very technically evolved prog, it isn't very atmospheric, it isn't epic, what is it? Symphoproggers should take a look at this, others might find better ways to spend their money and time.
Three stars. Sonnengeflecht is a fairly nondescript instrumental to get us under way. It starts and finishes with a funky beat of all things, although synthesizer and clavinet combine to good effect during the middle section.
The structurally complex Wer Schmetterlinge Lachen Hort is one of only two tracks that include vocals, provided by bassist Heino Schunzel. It's an interesting piece but it really only grabs me around the mid-point of its 9 minutes, with Detlef Job's shrieking guitar leads. Unfortunately this is rapidly replaced by some straightforward Hammond-led boogie. Other than for a growl right at the start of the track, Dronsz is a space-rock instrumental.
The first 3 minutes consist of guitar and synthesizer effects over a ground bass, gung-gung-tih, gung-gung-tih. We get a different beat for the remainder Novalis (3) - Lebt! (Live) (CD) the track, but it's still fairly relentless.
Impressionen, based on themes by Austrian Romantic composer Anton Bruckner, is more like it! After a moody 2-minute introduction, we are treated to a series of different themes consisting of fiery guitar, swirling organ and synthesizer.
This song checks all the right boxes but I just find it a tad dull. The final track is a live version of Impressionen that suffers from some serious distortion, especially Novalis (3) - Lebt! (Live) (CD) the drum department. This is a pity because it's an energetic and powerful performance. All in all there's not a lot to get excited about here, and I can only stretch to describing this as a steady album.
There is at the least one very good track so it's not quite at the 'fans only' level, therefore I'll give it 3 stars.
This time We find a different style, in the vein of the romantic songs by Moody Blues and Procol Harum and probably it's the most spontaneous act within "Novalis" A typical example is the opening track which contains great symphonic space rock in the middle section.
However, in order to get there you have to indulge the bland German crooner vocals of the opening. The symphonic magic will also be ended abruptly by the awkward change to hard rock 'n' roll around minute 6. In short, the band doesn't seem to have the ideas and musicianship to forge the good basic material into something really remarkable. The instrumentals Dronsz and Impressionen are better and have some potential to fans of early Floyd, Eloy, Camel and Genesis.
If you're Novalis (3) - Lebt! (Live) (CD) for lost gems of the 70s symphonic prog scene I would generally recommend to look further south to Italy and not spend too much time in Germany. Even though the German scene has a very personal sympho-kraut sound, there are very few albums that rise above average. Take that from a big fan of the German 70s music scene. The now five-piece Novalis kept plenty of elements from the previous style, but the presence of the two guitarists made them sound richer and more flexible.
This is still keyboard-driven Symphonic Rock, but synths are used constantly at the expense of the Hammond organ, while there are enough melodic guitar lines to offer an additional color. Fans of their organ-driven debut sound won't be dissapointed either. The album contains plenty of Classical-influenced themes, delivered by the organ of Lutz Rahn and the synths are usually used in a very symphonic way.
Rahn though is always there to keep an overall romantic feeling, that dominated ''Banished bridge'', through his work on keyboards. Very interesting German Symphonic Rock, not a pure masterpiece, but generally an album with beautiful and well-crafted instrumental adventures.
The comeback of Novalis is of course strongly recommended I have had a couple of Novalis original and low priced cassettes since quiet a while. Although they never impressed me beyond singing in German, which is a relief, opposite to their fellow countrymen Progggers who tend to use the English language mostly.
One of those cassettes is this "Novalis", To their benefit, here in Mexico, Novalis was well known. But nevertheless, their musical offerings stay short of becoming notable.
To cut it short, they have a knack for cheesy melody solutions to their compositions, even the good ones. The keyboards which are a BIG act on this recording's scope, as they Novalis (3) - Lebt! (Live) (CD) construct excellent "Jon Lord" or Jazz like structuring lines, as they can also turn any moment unexpectedly into less interesting cliches.
Like a battle within, between being creative or being corny. At the end, one's listening experience has to decide to indulge or ignore, or both. In my personal experience, since I aquired this recording, if I have not bought the cd, it is because it has not been that essential in the long run, but I have kept this "mechanical box" up to now, anyway. The other two instrumentals, Sonnengeflecht and Dronsz, start a tradition of fairly short and straight but pleasant and atmospheric instrumentals of various moods that would run through all further recordings of Novalis until the very end.
Actually, listening to these 40 years later, they have a quite timeless quality, and I think it's a pity that nobody tried to release a Novalis instrumental sampler when postrock was big - the energetic Sonnengeflecht could easily have appeared with somewhat revised sounds on a Tortoise album and the smooth, slowly intensifying Dronsz sounds now like Salarymen to me, except that Novalis was 20 years earlier.
These songs are so friendly and unpretentious that I'd guess nobody would have considered them cutting edge but just good to listen to - still they are ahead of their time in a certain way. Overall a very creative, fresh and pleasant album with just the right degree of complexity.
I specially like some funky wah-wah guitar playing on some parts that make their sound quite unique only Nektar seems to be using such device at the time. The remaining tracks are instrumentals that although not as good as the longer epics are also of high quality. My only gripe with this CD is its short time: only 35 minutes. It ends too soon and keeps me wanting more. Conclusion: with their second release Novalis found its voice and delivered a beautiful symphonic prog album.
Not really a masterpiece, but still an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection. Four stars. Here I go again with a review of an excellent album. Novalis is a German band who rocked the seventies with their romantic sound and I think it's appropriate to say that that sound was begun here on their second record with the name "Novalis" from The cover picture is wonderful. I think the second albun of NOVALIS "Novalis" a indispensable item in any serious prog collection and the best albun of this band, I consider also fairly superior to "Banished Bridge" and "Somerabend", albuns which presents the same 4 stars in the P A.
The fantastic overture of the first t Does anybody Know novalis at all?. If you dont know how could you not know they sing in it too novalis are german and are from the few german symphonic bands. Yes, yes, yes When almost everywhere prog was on its sunset boulevard, in Germany for such bands as Novalis and Eloy the best had yet to come.
Symphonic rock the way we like it. Four stars. The most revealing absence is some truly guitar parts. Also the songs all seem to be half cooked: good ideas that were not fully explored both in terms of songwriting and in musical performances. That does not mean they are bad, not at all. They are nice, but far from the Novalis we all know and love. Besides they are all sung in english, something they were about to change, The band would get a lot better very soon.
Conclusion: a good starting point for this great band, but far from essential: 3 stars. It is no wonder that some of the older material sounds better here than on their studio counterparts.
Sometimes their music reminds me of great german bands like Triumvirat, Eloy and the dutch legends Focus, but for most of the time the songs, although sounding quite familiar, are very original and unique. Lutz Rahn is probably one of the most underrated keyboards genius of the world and the rest of the band is not far behind. The three bonus tracks area also a nice addition to the package: maybe not as perfect as the main course, but they are very good anyway.
Conclusion: I was really, really glad to hear Novalis with a proper remastering that shows their music as it should be from the beginning. You will be rewarded with 78 minutes of pure prog heaven.
Rating: 5 stars, no less. A masterpiece of progressive music. Highly recommended! Review by Warthur Prog Reviewer. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. They created a rock music of poetic, lyrical with german lyrics and instrumental beauty. They released a few albums of lush, keyboard-dominant prog rock during the seventies. The keyboards created majestic layers on which the guitar builds airy melodies.
This self-titled album was their 2nd album and continues to show their own style take on these influences. They did very well down musically and commercial in the second half of the 70's.
