about

A musical journey where Classical music meet its roots in the traditional music of the world, notably Irish and Gipsy music, through surprisingly original compositions and re-elaborated versions of classical pieces mixed with Trad, Jazz and Balkan sounds.

A Bach’s fugue that turns into an Irish Dixie, a Mozart’s minuet in the Scottish valleys, a Chopin’s studio from Warsaw to Granada becoming a Flamenco Jondo Chant, The 9th Symphony of Beethoven in the Appalachian Mountains, Mozart’s Turkish March brought back to Istanbul ending unexpectedly in a polka in the Kerry style...

“Pure sonic reverie”…

“A true musical visionary, one who not only sees through cultural barriers, he plows through them. For this composer, musical categories of genre, century and nation bear no restriction or limitation for his creativity—he brings all eras and cultures together in one musical space.”….

"In this album, classical music dances a waltz and a jig with influences from Irish trad and Gypsy music."...

“O’Breskey’s musical crossovers have an ethical imperative as well. He seeks to mesh the majority with the minority, the present with the past, and the vocal with the silenced, so as to “deflate the ethnocentrism of classical Western music.” For this musician, musical cultures are not defined by borders, but by historical roots that reach deeply across all areas of the globe."

THE IRISH ECHO, BOSTON


Featuring poet Josè Angel Irigarai, celloist Davide Viterbo and many more...

In the booklet Antóni O’ sums up his theories that deflate the ethnocentrism of classical western music and brings back the focus on the various traditional musical cultures, that are unacknowledged by the big media and the academic world, and which are really the roots of all music.

ITALIAN:

Una fuga di Bach che si trasforma in Irish Dixie, un minuetto di Mozart nelle valli Scozzesi, Chopin da Varsavia a Granada che diventa un canto Jondo ​F​lamenco, la ​N​ona ​S​infonia di Beethoven sui monti Appalachi…​il Rondo alla ​T​urca di Mozart riportat​o​ ad Istanbul…

Un viaggio musicale sofisticato ed ironico in cui la musica classica incontra le sue radici nelle musiche tradizionali del mondo, attraverso sorprendenti versioni rielaborate di note composizioni classiche unite al Jazz, al Flamenco, alla musica Irlandese e Balcanica.

Featuring il poeta Josè Angel Irigarai, il violoncellista Davide Viterbo e molti altri...

Un libretto di 51 pagine in inglese e lingua basca accompagna il cd, con riflessioni su temi vari, dalla musica all’arte, dalla cultura alla gastronomia, alla sociologia e tanto altro, sempre in relazione alla vita e alla vitalitá. Aforismi, narrazioni brevi, riflessioni critiche, poetiche, in uno stile proprio, pieno di immaginazione e ironia, e sempre controcorrente.

cd\libro disponibile sia in formato digitale che come copia fisica.
