"Extremely Talented Artist!
I was fortunate enough to come across Mr. Levy's music as I was conducting research o the music of Ancient Greece. I work for the Teaaching Company, a well-known U.S. production house that specializes in educational video and audio courses. Mr. Levy's rendition of "The First Delphic Hymn to Apollo" expodentially enhanced the academic content and production value of our course "The Great Tours:Greece and Turkey", giving our audience a realistic sense of the music and culture of the ancient world.Mr Levy's music deserves to be heard and appreciated by all who have a sincere interest in understanding the evolution of music and the sounds of ancient times. Or anyone who simply appreciates good music!"

"An Undying Musical Legacy!
In ancient Greek Classical Antiquity, the lyre was given a prominent pride of place. Michael Levy brings that era alive with his beautifully composed album. "The Golden Age of Pericles" is superbly performed. The fluid tones of the lyre create a certain magic in the atmosphere. The splendorous "The Garden of Epicurus" is an utterly pleasurable track with its running water sounds under the equally mellifluous sound of the lyre....loved it! The minor notes in "Rhetoric of the Sophists" bring middle-Eastern influences to mind. Another track that I found quite mesmerizing is "Death of Socrates", the single notes played with pauses in parts is wonderful to hear! I found this album simply superb in that not only has Levy brought an ancient instrument and its music back to life, but also an entire civilization through his music"
