Longtime Traditions Meet!
Josu Gallastegui offers us a new musical treat! After exploring a myriad of nationalities, styles and musical art forms in his previous albums, he invites us into his native tradition and delights us with a double album of music from the Basque Country. Mr. Gallastegui's exquisite technique and finesse bring out the refined nuance and ornamentation that make the Basque music unique and so fetching. Simultaneously, there is a quality and structure in the music that is absolutely conducive to classical ballet dancing, in addition to being the inspiration for traditional Basque dances.

It is through his impeccable craft, musical intuition and insight into dance movement, that Mr. Gallastegui has selected and adapted this collection seamlessly, bringing it into the ballet class and offering dancers an enlivening experience. It is a communion in which ballet dancers have an opportunity to hone their musical ear and respond with their own instruments to the ebullient, soul-filled music Mr. Gallastegui provides. Here, classical ballet meets traditional Basque music, offers a "révérence" and, as dancer and musician extend hands to fingertips in this collaborative artistic process, so begins the dance!
