Ferenc Snétberger, Keller Quartett: Hallgató

Read "Hallgató" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Il nuovo lavoro del chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snétberger, il terzo pubblicato da ECM, è condiviso con il Keller Quartet, anch'esso costituito da musicisti ungheresi, per un programma di musica classica registrato in concerto nella Grand Hall della Liszt Academy di Budapest nel dicembre 2018, in cui il chitarrista mostra la sua formazione classica sia come interprete che come compositore. Il CD si apre con il concerto in tre movimenti “In Memory of My People," composto da Snétberger ...

Ferenc Snetberger: Titok

Read "Titok" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Dopo il disco dal vivo con cui ha esordito per la ECM, il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger ritorna con un nuovo lavoro, questa volta in trio con il contrabbassista Anders Jormin e il batterista Joey Baron. La presenza di una sezione ritmica rende l'elemento jazzistico più marcato che nel precedente lavoro realizzato in solitudine, e fa scoprire un nuovo lato musicale del chitarrista, già esplorato in passato con l'album Nomad del 2005, realizzato con un trio analogo insieme a Arild ...

Ferenc Snetberger: TITOK

Read "TITOK" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Hungarian nylon-string guitarist Ferenc Snétberger made his ECM debut playing live solo guitar on In Concert (2016). Here he shares the musical space with Swedish bassist Anders Jormin and U.S. drummer Joey Baron--a combination suggested by producer Manfred Eicher, and cemented by three concerts in Hungary before the recording session. Jormin and Baron have played together on live shows, but never on record, despite their many individual ECM appearances. Baron has considerable experience playing with guitarists: he has ...

Ferenc Snetberger: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Era solo questione di tempo prima che il chitarrista ungherese Ferenc Snetberger approdasse ai lidi ECM. Molte delle sue passate produzioni discografiche non avrebbero affatto sfigurato nel catalogo dell'etichetta bavarese, che finalmente lo può annoverare tra i suoi artisti con la pubblicazione di questo In Concert, registrazione di una sua esibizione in solo a Budapest nel 2013. L'accostamento a Ralph Towner viene spontaneo, altro chitarrista di punta dell'etichetta che utilizza la chitarra classica applicandone la tecnica al ...

Ferenc Snetberger: In Concert

Read "In Concert" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Hungarian classical guitarist Ferenc Snétberger makes his ECM debut with a live solo guitar recording, surely the most demanding and revealing format for any guitarist. His music is the product of diverse stylistic influences: starting with jazz, but then a strong classical music influence, followed by exposure to Brazilian, South American, and flamenco guitar music. Snétberger cites his first encounter with Johann Sebastian Bach's music as life-changing, followed by hearing ECM label mates Egberto Gismonti in duo with Nana Vasconcelos. ...

Ferenc Snetberger: Nomad

Read "Nomad" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni


Nomad is the seventh release by Hungarian-born, Berlin-based acoustic guitarist Ferenc Snétberger, but in many ways this collaborative effort may be the culmination of experiences by his collaborator, Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen, with small ensembles that feature acoustic guitarists. Andersen recorded Karta (ECM, 1999) with two of Snétberger's musical partners--German trumpeter Markus Stockhausen and French drummer/percussionist Patrice Héral--plus fellow Norwegian guitarist Terje Rypdal; four years later, Snétberger replaced Rypdal for the recording of Joyosa (Enja, 2004). Karta and Joyosa focused ...

Ferenc Sn: Nomad

Read "Nomad" reviewed by John Kelman


They say music is the international language. That's true, but like any language it can have an infinite number of dialects. Add to that the result of cultural cross-pollination, and the language of music can become as complex and unfathomable as any other. The intricacies and complexities of jazz might be hard for a pure punk devotee to understand, for example, but the beauty of a simple folk song might also be lost on someone whose tastes run strictly towards ...
