Description

One of the ballet world’s most accomplished and beloved pianists, Josu Gallastegui was born in Spain’s Basque Country and grew up surrounded by its rich musical traditions. In A Journey Home, he brings this subtle, evocative music to life for dancers, teachers, and students everywhere. His father, Hipólito, taught him many of the popular Basque songs included in this collection. Josu has dedicated this new collection to parents, Hipólito and Juanita Gallastegui.

 

A Journey Home features 32 selections on two CDs, including choices of music for plié, tendu, adagio, turns, and small, medium, and large jumps. The final selection is the exuberant and joyful ¡Viva Navarra!—more than 5 minutes of music superbly played in Josu’s own unforgettable style. The ballet class is based on the teaching of Professor Marta Ruiz Estrampes.
