Over 20,000 discs sold, more than 220 concerts at home and abroad, two extensive tours... Those are just a few examples of the successes gained by the Gipsy Way project in the wake of the 2008 album Pavel Šporcl recorded with his Gipsy band. Six years later, in tandem with Supraphon, the violinist held two concerts at Prague’s legendary Domovina Studio, whose fruit is the new CD, Gipsy Fire. On this new release a succession of technically challenging “Gipsy” repertoire pieces are blended with catchy and melancholic film melodies (Grand blond avec une chaussure noire and Fiddler on the Roof, and a theme Pavel recorded for the Czech movie Divided We Fall) and Piazzolla’s breathtakingly beautiful prayer Ave Maria. Pavel and the Gipsy Way Ensemble play as if their very lives are in the balance; the audience’s frenzied response indicates that they don’t want the music to ever stop.
