Filippo Gambetta


A student of the Italian master of melodeon, Riccardo Tesi, Filippo Gambetta brings his instrument to many different musical situations. He creates a music that mixes the tradition of Liguria with the rhythmic and harmonic styles of the Balkans; the French touch with the Mediterranean sense of melody and contemporary classical sounds.

"Gambetta and his three partners, celloist Mariana Carli, violinist Francesco Denini, and guitarist Claudio de Angeli plainly conceive of themselves as a chamber quartet, proud of traditional roots yet compelled to express them with a modern industrial glint. Hints of dissonance coexist with sweet melodies, or sometimes shoulder them aside for a time before ultimately relinquishing control. The segues are so artfully executed that stylistic frontiers become blurry. ... The compositions and performances on Stria are nuanced and complex, successfully integrating unlikely influences, continually revealing new pleasures" - Jim Foley, RootsWorld

Most of our CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and we are not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever we can, we used recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
