Gheorghe Zamfir - Colors (1990 Romania) [256m4a]

This is a greatest-hits album by the self-proclaimed King of the Pan Flute. A version of Mozart's "Elvira Madigan" and Zamfir's most famous piece "The Lonely Shepherd" stand out among the popular tunes and original compositions. Most pieces are heavily orchestrated with sweeping strings backing Zamfir's simple pan flute. This is ultra-romantic music aimed with great success right at the heart of the easy-listening market.

Thanks to Left Blank for introducing me to this man :)
