Gismonti, Egberto - Saudacoes

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar

"Här kan man få en annorlunda och spännande musikupplevelse. På två välproducerade skivor möter vi en stor kompositör och musiker. På den första disken bjuds en svit för den sexton man starka stråkensemblen Camerata Romeu. Det är en tät och suggestiv musik som hypnotiserar. På den andra plattan visar Egberto, tillsammans med sonen Alexandre Gismonti, vilka bländande gitarrister han och gossen är. I sviten Duetos Violões målar de två upp en stolt och dramatisk bild av den brasilianska tradition de så utsökt vårdar. Det virtuosa firar triumfer, men det musikaliska blir aldrig lidande. Om juryn för Polarpriset läser JP vet jag inte. Men Egberto Gismonti borde snart få priset i den "seriösa" kategorin."

- Egberto Gismonti's first new ECM recording in 14 years!

- SAUDAÇÕES means greetings, salutations, saludos, saluti, the artist saying hello again after a long absence.

- Double album focusing on two aspects of the Brazilian artist's creativity, as composer of music for chamber orchestra (disc 1) and as virtuoso guitarist (disc 2)

- In August 2006, Gismonti flew to Cuba to record a new seven part suite "Sertões Veredas: Tribute to Miscegenation" with an unusual and colourful orchestra, the all-women Camerata Romeu, conducted by Zenaida Romeu. The orchestra specializes in performances of South American composition.

- The following year, in Rio de Janeiro, he recorded a programme of guitar duets, "Duetos de Violões" with his talented son Alexandre (disc 2). This includes new arrangements of a number of Gismonti favourites including "Lundù", "ZigZag" and "Dança dos Escravos"

- CD booklet, with texts in English and Portuguese, includes detailed description of the orchestral music, as well as musical score excerpts.

Born in Carmo, Brazil, in 1947, Gismonti studied classical piano from the age of five, but is self-taught on guitar, which he took up at age of 21, soon developing his innovative, two-handed techniques of simultaneous lines and counter-melodies on the instrument. In 1970 he travelled to Paris to study with two important teachers, famed pedagogue Nadia Boulanger and twelve-tone composer Jean Barraqué, Webern's most dedicated disciple. These experiences served also to strengthen Gismonti's respect for the music of his homeland, which seemed to him an unlimited resource. "World music", as it would later be termed, was on his doorstep - so many musical traditions overlapped and dovetailed in Brazil: "All European cultures and other cultures are part of our culture." International recognition for Gismonti arrived with the release of his ECM debut "Dança des cabeças" in 1977, which won the "Großer Deutscher Schallplattenpreis", the annual award of the German Records Critics, and the Album of the Year Award from US magazine Stereo Review. He was also one third of the extremely popular Magico trio with Charlie Haden and Jan Garbarek whose two albums "Magico" and "Folk Songs" are regarded today as quintessential recordings of ECM's first decade. Other Gismonti recordings on ECM include "Sol do meio dia", "Sanfona","Solo", "Duas Vozes", "Dança dos escravos", "Infância" "Música de Sobrevivência", "ZigZag" and the orchestral "Meeting Point", perhaps the closest reference for the music of "Sertões Veredas". In the last two decades Gismonti has also issued recordings on his Carmo label via ECM distribution channels (15 discs to date). This new double album was co-produced by ECM and Carmo, with Egberto himself supervising the recording. Gismonti's new orchestral suite is described in the liner notes as "a musical journey through Brazil, revealing, in a diffuse way, the different faces of its people, culture and history. It's a journey through time and space, in a permanent exchange between music, literature and cinema, where nothing is left untouched and everything goes through a deep transformation." The music at different points makes reference to Villas Lobos, Stravinsky, Bach, the dance rituals of the Xingu Indians and more. Conductor Zenaida Romeu comes from one of Cuba's most distinguished musical families. Both her grandfather and her great uncle were well-known conductor-composers. In 1993 Zenaida founded the Camerata Romeu as a female orchestra dedicated to "recreating national and Latin values". The orchestra has since travelled the world and been widely acclaimed. A documentary about the Camerata Romeu, "Cuba Mia" won numerous awards. Alexandre Gismonti, born 1981, studied guitar and musical theory at the Centro Musical Antonio Adolfo in Rio de Janeiro from the age of 12. Thoroughly committed to the musical oeuvre of his father, he has performed with Egberto at major festivals in South America and Europe.
