Album Notes
Giuseppe Doronzo "GOYA" - for baritone sax solo

"Goya" is an Urdu word that describes a state of mind between reality and imagination.
Imagined, real… What is reality? Is it my fingers pressing into a piece of clay or the clay pushing them
These pieces are stories shared. That I lived directly or indirectly; that I have been part of, consciously
or unconsciously. I feel like the channel, the medium that uncovers them. “I do not speak, I am
spoken”, as Carmelo Bene would say.
The album "GOYA" for baritone sax solo is released on Giuseppe Doronzo's record label, Tora Records.

Same notes about the tracks:

Arundo Choir is a piece dedicated to Arundo Donax, the actual cane that gives life to the sound of the saxophone;

Flusso di coscienza (Stream of consciousness) is a piece inspired by James Joyce and the overtone singing practiced by people in Mongolia and Tuva.

Conversation describes itself.

Nesciobrug (Nescio’s bridge)is dedicated to the dutch writer Nescio as well as one of the longest bridges in the Netherlands that I used to ride very often.

Engaku-ji came into my ears, together with its silence, while I was travelling in Japan.

Rotunda is inspired by an ancient temple based in Thessaloniki, Greece early 4th-century AD. The piece takes its name from the place itself, Rotunda (Ροτόντα)

Canti dal grano (songs from the wheat field) belongs somehow to my roots. It takes inspiration from an old song, that was sung by farmers who were working on wheat fields in Puglia, South of Italy, during the threshing and harvest periods. It’s a song about contradiction.

… huge sonore sound; his performance is mystic, multilayered and full of secrecy” ( Joode)

“… Doronzo holds a brilliant argument for the baritone sax as a leading instrument.” (Trouw)
