In 2014 Gandalf has released both a new album called Frame by Frame, and a novel in German entitled Die Seelenharfe (The Harp of the Soul).
About the album, Gandalf says:
For the most part the music has got a Celtic spirit and was written for the TV-documentary Das Steinzeiträtsel (“The Stone Age Enigma”) by Ronald & Roswitha Vaughan. Some tracks with a more Classical touch were composed for the novel Der Nachlass Domenico Minettis (“Domenico Minettis Inheritance”) by the Austrian author Dietmar Gnedt. A very special piece played on concert-harp is based on Gandalf’s new book Die Seelenharfe (“Echoes of the Heart”).
The music was performed by Gandalf – piano & keyboards, acoustic guitars & percussion, Karin Leitner – Irish whistles, Nicky Eggl – Irish whistles & bodhran, Monika Stadler – harp, Merike Hilmar – cello, Vasile Marian – oboe & English horn.
