Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The evocative ECM debut of the outstanding Hungarian guitarist Zsófia Boros addresses a broad range of composition for her instrument, drawing on music of the Americas. "Often I think I am holding the choice of music in my own hands, but later I wonder if the music has chosen me as a medium. My approach is always very intuitive; when a piece of music grips or touches me, I want to reflect it - to become a mirror and convey it." At the center of En otra parte is music of Leo Brouwer, the Cuban composer who once declared that the guitar has "no limits", a major reference for Boros from the beginning of her musical journey. Her sensitive solo recital also includes Ralph Towner's "Green and Golden", Vicente Amigo's tribute to the spirit of flamenco " Callejón de la luna", a waltz by Dilermando Reis,Quique Sinesi's "Cielo Abierto", inspired by the rhythms of candombe and milonga, and much more. Named for the poem by Roberto Juarroz, "Todo comienza en otra parte" ("Everything begins somewhere else"), Boros's album was recorded in Lugano in 2012 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Ms Boros is a Hungarian guitarist, currently based in Vienna. She studied in Bratislava, Budapest, and Vienna, and has won or placed in several European competitions. Most of the rest of the pieces are of the same character: pretty pieces with nice melodies. This approach used to be popular among guitarists who played with a soulful expression on their face.
