We just came across this performance of our “Song From A Secret Garden” by cellist Stjepan Hauser with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. We love it and wanted to share it with you all. One You Tube comment was particularly complementary: "This is the song that will play in the credits when the world ends”🙏🏼 … See MoreSee Less
That’s a beautiful version of one of your most beautiful songs ever! The only Secret Garden song I can play by heart on the violin! 🎻 ♥️ And so I do very often! 🥰
This is one of my favorite Secret Garden songs. It brings such peace.
My favorite secret garden song💜💙
I love Secret Garden and love the songs!
Hauser is an extremelu talented cellist. Quite a bit arrogant at times, but he has a rather unique style of playing. I like to watch his videos on Youtube, and yes, he did do "Song From a Secret Garden" VERY well. If I remember correctly, he and another man had a group for a while called "Two Cellos". He does give people another side to see of how a cello can be played-not just as an orchestra instrument only playing classical music. I think it would be fun if you could get together with him and see what happens musically!
Of all your songs for me "Elegie" has always been "the end of the world song" 😊 It's the last song I would like to hear when my world ends..it says all ❤ but I like this song as well like all your songs!!! They make this world much more beautiful!😍
I've listened both your original and Hausers version for many times. The song did hit me 1996 and still touches my soul. Thank you, both ❤️
This Is the song that calms my soul, wakes me every morning and yes I am sure will be in the credits of life. Thank you for it.
A beautiful song and a lovely version. I'm no expert but I can hear slight differences to the original and it's funny but as I love the original so much it always seems just the perfect piece and so I give the Ireland vote (douze point) to Secret Gardens version and 10 points to Hauser !
Bellissima interpretazione!Adoro la musica dei Secret Garden❤🎼
Secret Garden has carried us through the joyous, and not so joyous journeys of life….I agree with the You Tube comment about when the world ends….love it!
One of my favorite songs ever…
👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽…but never recorded by HAUSER, was it? 🤔
just to correct, in description of video it states Zagreb orchestra not Praha.
Lost count of how many times I've watched this. A stunning performance of a beautiful song
That was so beautiful it made me cry!!! 🎼
Jo Thomas I love this song
В оригинальном исполнении группой мне нравится больше.
Merci de partager! ♥️
I consider the original version to be unrivalled! 🏆
That comment is definitely spot on.
I'm always captivated by the original performance of yours with brilliant Fionnuala Sherry genuinely playing with no mannerisms but with delicate, sophisticated pathos… So uplifting, so moving… Unmatched! ⚘
of course Hauser was playing with the Zagreb Philarmonic conducted by the brilliant Elizabeth Fuchs. It is an absolutely brilliant rendition of Song from a Secret Garden. It is so good in fact it's nearly as good as the original.😀
Unbelievable though that so many comments on YouTube show that so many people have no idea that this song is written and originally played by the wonderful Secret Garden!! ❤️❤️🥇👏
