WORLD: World Fusion, CLASSICAL: Contemporary

The Bronze Collection is a stunning new percussion project, an assemblage of over 50 gongs and cymbals from around the world. Using an unique, inter-cultural palette of his own design, composer Joseph Bertolozzi redefines previous concepts of melody, rhythm and texture with sounds rarely heard together, or in a unified context. In this sampler you'll hear rhythmic cymbals sing, melodic gongs pulse, and other combinations existing simply as aural events. Emotionally, physically, the music moves you. Using custom mallets, drumsticks, brushes, foot pedals and a bass bow, Bertolozzi combines a discrete mix of high and low, bright and dark, short and sustained, pitched and unpitched gongs, cymbals and roto-toms into a new sonic world. This sampler will introduce you to a world of music you didn't know existed. It's loud! It's soft! It's tribal! It's avant-garde! It's ambient! It's world! Think you know what new music is like? THINK AGAIN!

Joseph Bertolozzi is a composer with increasingly numerous performances across the US and Europe to his credit. Groups such as The Concert Band of the US Military Academy at West Point and the Grammy-winning Chestnut Brass Company have taken his music on tour, and he himself has played at such diverse venues as The Vatican and The US Tennis Open. His body of work comprises orchestral and choral music, chamber music and solo pieces, liturgical music for use in Christian and Jewish worship, and now the exploration of sound through The Bronze Collection, an assemblage of over fifty gongs, cymbals and drums from Asia, Europe and North America. He recently completed a ballet score for large orchestra entitled Bosko and Admira, based on the true story of two lovers who were killed while trying to flee Sarajevo in 1993. Also skilled as a concert organist, he's performed in the US as well as in Italy, Poland, Portugal (under the auspices of the American Embassy in Lisbon [USIS]) and Spain on some of the finest and oldest organs in the world, including St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.
