GRECO, J.L.: Geografías del Silencio / In Passing / Swallow / Off with its Head! (Gifford, Netherlands Wind Ensemble, Czech National Symphony, Leaper)
American–born but of Spanish descent, José Luis Greco enjoys a wide–ranging career. His music embraces traditional and eclectic contemporary elements, and his interests in pop, rock and jazz have been enriched by the creation of multimedia performances. Geografíasdel silencio illustrates the quality of silence via ‘a quest in which melancholy and dream states are mingled.’ Greco is the son of dancers and In Passing demonstrates his vivid choreographic imagination. Avian memories permeate the beautiful Swallow and kaleidoscopic childhood impressions surface in Offwith its Head!
