Yifrashewa, Girma - Love & Peace

SKU 34-UW 13 CD
A beautiful album of Ethiopian piano music released on a modern classical label. Y'know, sometimes things DO just make sense!

"What if Chopin had vacationed in Addis Ababa? In this alluring piano music, poetic filigree meets spirited Ethiopian sounds."-Tom Huizenga, NPR Songs of 2014

"Yirma Yifrashewa is an Ethiopian composer who was trained partly in his native country and partly at Sofia Conservatory in Bulgaria. In his solo piano pieces you will hear, unsurprisingly, a blend of influences: the pentatonic melodies of his native region are consistently in evidence, but so are gestures that are reminiscent of Brahms and occasional rhythmic passages bring to mind the dance pieces of Louis Gottschalk. Everything on this album is perfectly lovely, and it provides an interesting window on the current state of Afro-European classical cross-fertilization."-CD Hotlist, September 2014 [
