Description

Released in 2011, Recollections features 31 piano pieces for Ballet Barre and Centr, a two-CD set—his ninth recording of ballet class music. Recollections includes selections by Verdi, Strauss, Gounod, Donizetti, Rameau, and Telemann among others. The recording offers three selections for adagio, including regal excerpts from Gounod’s Faust and music by Scottish classical composer William Wallace. 


An accomplished accompanist, arranger, and composer, Gallastegui has won the praise of ballet’s most celebrated artists. 

 

Cynthia Harvey has called Josu “a legend in the ballet world as one of the finest accompanists”. Renowned teacher David Howard considers Gallastegui “a unique pianist, I love his music.”
