Album Notes
The essence of Love is Eternity. Love transcends time. Beyond memories of a beginning and fear of an end our immortal soul symbolizes love and Eternal life. Music becomes a gateway to the realization and integration of our deepest feelings of love, grief, fear, joy and peace. ~ Anaya
Anaya’s childhood dream to play alongside a live symphony orchestra was brought to life on the “Eternity” album. The unique production features a virtual collaboration and real time recording in cyberspace between Anaya Music in Brazil, a live symphony orchestra in Prague, and Steve Salani at Studios in Los Angeles. The symphony orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic. Anaya’s musical articulation of “Eternity” becomes a harmonious, uplifting passage into the soul of music playing the symphony of the universe.

Review from
Brazilian-born composer and vocalist, Anaya, has previously recorded several albums of new age music. Having long dreamed of recording alongside a live symphony orchestra, her dream eventually came to fruition on her latest album, titled Eternity, where she is joined by the lovely arrangements of the Prague Live Symphony Orchestra. Comprised of seven compositions spanning nearly thirty-three minutes, all but two pieces (“For Love” and “Once in Time”) were co-composed and arranged with Steve Salani.

“Dharma” opens the album with a majestic orchestral arrangement of strings, woodwinds and brass instruments. Possessing a distinctively cinematic quality, the piece immediately brings to mind that of a fairytale movie. “New Skies” ensues with the sound of running water, perhaps from a stream or river, and is easily my favorite composition herein. Bearing subtle resemblances to the music of both Deuter and Kitaro, the piece is led by a stringed-instrument with a melody that possesses an East Asian flavor. Hazy piano droplets are interspersed among ethereal synthesized chords like balmy mists rising up from a spring, bringing images to mind of a beautifully serene Japanese garden. “Cosmos” follows next with a symphonic arrangement that unfolds in a procession-like manner, where it’s accompanied by the sound of a light snare, along with bells, chimes and tribal-esque percussion that builds towards the end. The next piece, “For Love”, is reminiscent of a romantic novel or period film, with its tenderly warm and sentimental quality. It is followed by the more fantasy-like “Love’s River”, which is introduced by a buoyant keyboard melody. A dreamily waltzing piece that dances and sways throughout, it mimics the motion of sailing along a river, while also bringing to mind that of watching a decades-old stage performance. Named for the living earth, “Gaia” follows with a blend of gently symphonic and environmental nature sounds that paint images of a paradisal landscape. Wrapping up the album is “Once in Time”, a sweepingly cinematic composition led by a full orchestra of string and brass instruments that eventually swell to a close.

While this album is based upon a theme of cosmic spirituality, it should be noted that the compositions herein are neither descriptive of meditation or space music. Rather, this is definitive new age neoclassical music that conveys images of epically visual and emotional scenes, as if musically narrating a movie. A simply delightful recording that will likely appeal to many fans of both new age and neoclassical music, Eternity is wrapped in the glowing of essence of beauty, peace and positivity!

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
While I have enjoyed Anaya’s previous keyboard-based albums, her new release, “Eternity,” in collaboration with a live symphony orchestra, brings out the richness and dimension of her stirring compositions, taking the music to another level all together. Anaya’s desire to elevate the human spirit is deeply felt in every note of this inspired recording.

Although she has many albums to her credit, Anaya’s lifelong dream has been to record with a symphony orchestra. On “Eternity,” that dream has finally become a reality. To quote from her liner notes: “This unique production features a virtual collaboration and real time recording in cyberspace between Anaya in Brazil, a live symphony orchestra in Prague, and Steve Salani at Studios in Los Angeles. The symphony orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.” This is indeed a unique production that utilizes the latest in interactive technology in a way that would have been inconceivable not that long ago.

The album begins with a sweet violin playing over a string section with a neo-classical feel. As it evolves, the sound of harp and flute add a celestial ambiance. There is a heartfelt warmth to the composition that makes for wonderful welcome into Anaya’s musical world. The soothing sound of a babbling brook paired with subtle strings carries the listener along in its flow on track 2, “New Skies.” In trying to describe the first half of track 3, “Cosmos,” the thought that comes to mind is that the music creates a feeling of being held in the embrace of a loved one. It seems to envelop you providing a sense of comfort and peace. At about half way through, the sound of orchestral bells, percussion, and woodwinds add to the strings with a feeling of awakening like a warm Spring day with the earth thawing out and coming back to life. In a tribute to the spirit of the Earth, a track called “Gaia” reflects a contrast between sounds that are ethereal and those that are more terrestrial, including chirping birds and natural elements, perhaps integrating the energies of Mother Earth and Father Sky.

One word that came up for me many times while listening and thinking of how best to describe this music is “cinematic.” I could easily imagine any track on this album as being a film score. One of the things that I most appreciated about this recording is that the orchestra was often quite subtle, while being exquisitely expressive in its understatement. Another aspect that stood out to me in Anaya’s music is the sense of warmth and loving heart energy that comes through in every song. This is not something that can just be added to a composition like an ingredient in a recipe, but is a genuine quality that flows from the being of the composer and their attunement to the source of that love. This is certainly one of her strong points, both as a musician and a person.

From MainlyPiano
Anaya (Tania Mara Botelho) has fulfilled a lifelong dream of playing alongside a live symphony orchestra with the creation of her new album, "Eternity." Anaya is a very prolific composer and musician who has had an extremely varied life, but I have to admit that this is the first of her many recordings that I’ve heard. The seven-track album features a virtual collaboration and real-time recording in cyberspace between Anaya Music in her native Brazil, a live symphony in Prague, and Steve Salani at Studios in Los Angeles. Anaya and Salani composed and arranged five of the seven pieces (Anaya composed the remaining two) and recorded them with the symphony to create a “harmonious, uplifting passage into the soul of music, playing the symphony of the universe.” To further quote Anaya, “The essence of Love is Eternity. Love transcends time….Music becomes a gateway to the realization and integration of our deepest feelings of love, grief, fear, joy, and peace.” The music itself is warm and inviting, soothing the soul and relaxing the spirit. More ambient than melodic, it works beautifully in both the background and the foreground.

"Eternity" begins with “Dharma,” a serene piece performed by the full orchestra, but led by violin and cello. Visual and cinematic, it’s a composition that would be excellent in a soundtrack. “New Skies” opens with the sound of running water (possibly a stream or waterfall) and ethereal orchestral sounds that create images of a peaceful, shimmering landscape where everything is fresh and green. “Cosmos” is also very cinematic, expressing universal themes of love, peace and unity. “For Love” has a very relaxed tempo and envelops the listener in warmth and healing tenderness. “Love’s River” begins as a keyboard solo before the orchestra joins in, keeping the keyboard in the forefront of most of the piece. Tranquil and untroubled, it’s something of a lullaby for adults. “Gaia” includes the soothing sound of birds singing in perhaps the most ambient of the tracks. Feelings of open space and quiet beauty along with gentle breezes and warm sunshine massage away the cares of the day. “Once In Time” brings the album to a peaceful close, leaving the listener feeling refreshed and renewed.

"Eternity" was a very ambitious project that has succeeded well in expressing the timelessness and universal qualities of love.

Review for One World Music Radio
Sometimes it’s really nice to be taken away to a far off land of beauty peace and tranquillity, and through this wonderful album by Anaya we can do just that. This is one of those stunning albums that are as rare as rain in Cyprus!
We start with a complete flourish on the opening piece called Dharma, using the talents and skills of the Prague Symphony Orchestra we are gifted a composition that in parts reminded me in style, of the great composer Ralph Vaughn Williams and The Lark Ascending. The string section really emphasised that mood for me, but the piece overall was so beautiful, it made the perfect start to the release.
Natural sounds of water start the next piece called New Skies and the tremulous sounds of the strings create a real vista of wonderment for us. Anaya as a keyboardist is outstanding, but combing her skills with the orchestra has brought us something truly magnificent. This trembling opus of a fresh new sky is vast, and gives us the listener plenty of room to explore the music in.
Eternity is a real fresh and picturesque album of great quality, just listen to Cosmos, and I am sure you will agree, this is one very striking arrangement, there is a slight quality of mournfulness, but that aged sound, manifests an expansive backdrop of musical genius for us to wander in. The percussion also adds a little flavour here as well.
For Love is up next, and a deep sense of true passion can be felt here. Love, one of the hardest of all emotions to deal with, is explored in a sublime and charming manner by Anaya, through the tones of this track, one can really feel the tenderness that went into creating this composition, the strings here really come into their own, and with the artists flowing talents, manifests for us something unconditionally beautiful.
The shortest piece off the album, at just less than three minutes long, is the keyboard based track Loves River. This for me is one of the cleverest compositions on the release, the strings, bass and keyboards almost place us on a boat trip of love down a river, in its movement and structure, I have a feeling that this maybe one of those tracks that you will not be able to resist playing again and again and again dear reader.
The longest offering on Anaya’s new album Eternity, at well over six and a half minutes, is our dear mother Gaia. I found this, our penultimate composition, very deeply moving and emotional, the floating keyboards and heart rendering string sections were so very moving. Anaya has also built in a little space feel to the track, as well as combining it with the sounds of birds, which gives us the eager listener, the overall feel of our planet in its entirety, our dear Gaia, our mother. Here is a track that just about delivers all aspects of mother earth to us, in a melodious opus of supreme quality. The orchestra and Anaya’s ability to create a musical symbiosis here is simply divine.
So we finish with the lavish and sweeping mood of the final piece called, Once in Time, when I first heard this I was reminded of the sound track work that composer Michael Hoppe creates. Anaya has left her best to last, and this is a composition that fashions magic, constructs a whole new musical dimension, and has been crafted with such a level of care and attention to detail, whilst retaining and cultivating that little childlike enchantment within us all.
Eternity is one of those albums that I would class as simply beautiful, the emotional intensity is there, all of the compositions have all been lovingly manifested for us to enjoy, and the added structure of the Symphony Orchestra of Prague, was a stroke of pure genius that has finally brought into our lives, one of the most professional and captivating releases I have heard for a long time, this is an absolute must for your collection.
