Repertoire Piano & Panpipe Duo
Format: COMPACT DISC
Gugger, Christiane; Zamfir, Gheorghe
Gheorghe Zamfir is the great international exponent of the pan flute. A virtuoso of the nai or Romanian pan flute, his sound is so particular, so recognizable, that everyone has heard him play, either on one of the million records he has sold worldwide, or else on the cult soundtracks he has recorded for film-composers like Vladimir Cosma and Ennio Morricone, and directors like Quentin Tarantino. On this recording, far from the great symphony orchestras, Zamfir appears in duo with pianist Christiane Gugger performing his own repertoire. Here you can discover a more intimate vision of his music that reveals all its powers of meditation and serene strength. Recorded by Jean-Claude Gaberel, a goldsmith in sound with an international reputation, this album translates all the force of Zamfir’s music, which lies at the crossroads between genres: classical, folk, international pop, new age and crossover.
