HUNGARY: Zsofia Boros- Local Objects (ECM 2016)

Local Objects 

Zsófia Boros: guitar

The second album from the Hungarian-born Vienna-based guitarist finds her embracing a broad scope of music, broader even than on her outstanding debut En otra parte.

This time the range extends from contemporary composition to jazz etude via music from Brazil, Argentina, Italy and Azerbaijan - all embraced with imagination and creative flair.

Pieces played here by Zsofia Boros include Egberto Gismontis challenging Celebracao de Núpcias (made famous on Dança das cabeças), Franghiz Ali-Zadehs Fantasie, Al Di Meolas Vertigo Shadow, and Carlo Domeniconis Turkish-influenced Koyunbaba.
