Agustí Fernandez

Agustí Fernández Celebration Ensemble

Label: Fundacja Sluchaj!

Format: CD

Genre: Jazz

In stock

The concert and Agustí Fernández’s 60th birthday, celebrated in a quite extraordinary way, was possible due the generous support of the 2015 GREC Festival de Barcelona. The personnel is completely different from the Polish recording, and so is the music. Despite the presence of the explosive Mats and super-abstract Joe, Agustí’s music carries certain "kindness", lyricism and melancholy in the freely improvised parts. Despite the truly abstract nature, there are also certain similarities (in the piano parts and the composed parts) to some works of John Cage or Pierre Boulez. One can also hear elements of Spanish, or rather Majorcan folk, and minimalism. 

The group is joined in the final parts by the incredible dancer, Sònia Sánchez. The sounds generated by her shoes can be particularly well heard in Part 8 and later. Everybody plays fantastic here, but Agustí’s perpetual journeys inside and outside the piano, Nate’s peaceful and tranquilizing trumpet sounds, and Mats’ controlled fusion are particularly impressive.
