GARBIZU, T.: Txistu and Piano Music - 6 Old Time San Sebastian Songs / Basque Suites Nos. 1 and 2 / 4 Zortzikos (Ansorena, Cendoya)

Tomás Garbizu is one of the greatest names in twentieth-century Basque music. This recording bears witness to his genius and his audacity in combining for the first time such disparate instruments as the txistu (a type of flute and the Basque culture’s most traditional dance instrument), the tamboril (Basque double-headed drum) and the keyboard, to form an entirely original and innovative ensemble. This disc features the Basque Country’s best-known txistulari, José Ignacio Ansorena, who has an exceptional insight into Garbizu’s music, partnered by pianist Álvaro Cendoya, who has already recorded an album of Garbizu’s piano works for Naxos (8.557630).
