Tibor Szemzo: Danube Exodus (2002)
The artist employs vocalist Marcell Lorand and Trio Lorand to enhance the proceedings with faintly mixed, operatic style libretto. With this effort, Szemzo implements enticing melodies to complement airy strings, delicately balanced percussion grooves and multihued frameworks, while also utilizing space and depth to great effect. On “Ceskoslovensko,” the ensemble renders temperate passages atop Tamas Toth’s tuneful electric bass work and drummer Peter Magyar Osszekoto’s subliminally inclined concoctions. Overall, Szemzo is a master at the art of deception, where his primary themes repeat in ostinato fashion to coincide with a few symmetrical shifts in strategy. Recommended...
