I wasn't quoting you, you self-centered twit. I was quoting Wiki. Genius, I tells you!!!! The relentless, haunting melodies embrace popish tunes, while the repetitive and simple folk-like modulations become hypnotic. The end result is a successful collage of fast and slow rhythms, full of beautiful sonorous sounds juxtaposed with prickly chords. Bogdanovic proves himself an able composer, an imaginative experimenter and a sensitive artist.

It was commissioned by the Pacific Dance Company in , and included nine dancers. His music shows a complete mastery of ethnic folk, jazz, and classical traditions. But what playing! Wielding a solo classical guitar, Dusan handles tricky polymeters, Balkan melodies, startling counterpoint, and oud- inspired improvised lines with nuance and sinewy grace. The depth of ideas and clarity of his playing borders on spooky.
If you love guitar, you must investigate this jewel. Superb, distinctive chamber jazz. He has much to say, handling the large sonata structures as effortlessly as the slight miniature Secrets, and he does so with authority, wit and humor.
He combines jazz and African rhythm with pentatonicism and elements of Indian music. He takes advantage of percussive effects. He uses technical tricks known to electric guitar players.
His biting harmonies frequently clash to the breaking point. This buoyant and confounding sonata emerges from compositional quarry and forms a balanced whole when musicians like Gruber and Maklar are at work. The two artists accompanied their audience through the mysteriously shining piece like experienced navigators and presented the sonata with sharp contrasts; an interpretation full of poetry, pep and extremes.
It is simply that the palette of Bogdanovic is immense: with colors, timbres, energies, nuances. Between the rustle of silk paper and the burst of machine gun, he knows how to do justice to the orchestral vocation of the guitar without taking away its intimate dimension of shared soliloquy. For those of you who understand its intricacies and subtleties, this is just out of this world, but requires a delicate performance tecnique and one cannot expect to catch public fancy.
Perhaps the blood of his native country which exists behind his refined compositional technique may account for this? Recommended, of course, for all Dusan freaks. Two of the players produced gamelan-like sounds by placing small staples on their strings. The relentless, haunting melodies embrace popish tunes, while the repetitive and simple folk-like modulations become hypnotic. The end result is a successful collage of fast and slow rhythms, full of beautiful sonorous sounds juxtaposed with prickly chords.
Bogdanovic proves himself an able composer, an imaginative experimenter and a sensitive artist. The descriptions of cadences and canonic technique are supported with practical exercises. Perhaps more so than any other composers of our time, Bogdanovic and Brouwer produce pieces of consistent quality while continuing to explore and expand their unique voices.
He has explored musical languages which are reflected in his style today: a synthesis of classical, jazz, and ethnic music. As a soloist and in collaboration with other artists, he has toured extensively throughout Europe, Japan, and the U. He has also collaborated on multi-disciplinary projects involving music, psychology, philosophy, and fine arts. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
