Contemporary Flamenco


Fine Music – March 2008 Edition – 2MBS-FM 102.5

Rating: five stars

It is amazing sometimes, how wrong you can be about a CD. The idea of reviewing eight tracks of contemporary Spanish flamenco did not exactly beckon me, but how rewarding it turned out to be! Greg Alfozetti’s guitar playing is simply marvellous – fluid, expressive, resonant and melodic, and the half-expected, half-feared hand clapping rhythms are firmly restricted to a supporting role when appropriate. Rather, the guitar is enriched by some exceptionally fine bowed work on cello, and thoughtful, sparing sax and bass. A most attractive combination, Arrebato’s music is arresting, often hauntingly beautiful and full of atmosphere. Phil Vendy
