Fugato Orchestra “NOÉ” 2010 Hungary excellent Progressive Rock, Fusion

Fugato Orchestra “NOÉ” 2010 Hungary excellent  Progressive Rock, Fusion..recommended..!

The orchestra was founded in 2000, with the aim of bringing classical and popular music closer together, enabling listeners of both genres to widen their perspectives. The blending of symphonic instruments with drums, bass guitar and synthesizer makes the instrumentation unique. The pieces include contemporary symphonic works, stylistic etudes, as well as compositions closer to jazz, rock, or electronic styles. The composer, Balazs Alpar, was born in 1982, in Budapest, Hungary. He began his musical studies at the age of six, and is currently enrolled at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, as a student of composition. Because of his interest in diverse styles he also studied jazz for a couple of years. His pieces, combining different styles, aim to retain classical approach despite a lighter character. This is most evident in the rhythmic and harmonic diversity, carefully elaborated voices, mood and emotional changes spanning the compositions.............

The Fugato Orchestra is a symphony orchestra with bass and bass guitar playing progressive symphonic jazzrock music combining elements of serious and light music.
The band was first set up experimental at the Citymajor Grammar School in February 2000. The Estuary of the Cities of Composers A concert was organized by the team led by Balázs Alpár, who is the author of the pieces. The members were initially both VMG students. However, due to the new opportunities and increasing expectations, more and better musicians were needed, so some of the members were replaced by music academics, conservative musicians and jazz musicians.
After the Composers' Evening, all the signs showed that it was worth pursuing.
The goal was to experiment with a lot of genres and diverse sounds (symphony orchestra + synthesizer + drum + bass guitar), but always create an eye-catching ensemble.
"This music is trying to keep the music of the classical music kept in mind, but at the same time it opens a door to critics who are only serious musicians for their demanding light music."
The expansion of the repertoire has begun, and the symphonic transcripts of the works of popular composers and composers have also begun to enhance the performance of the concerts.
In March 2001, at the Citymajor High School, they gave their first solo giant concert with more than fifty students in the school. Everything was profitable: computer projection with projector, lights, lots of techniques, all that is needed for a professional music show. We managed to bring together smaller and bigger difficulties. The concert was attended by nearly six hundred audiences, and the success was even greater than expected.
The often expressive instrumental music is well-suited to the image subtraction, which greatly contributes to the transmission of the message of the numbers and to the understanding of background history. The so-called " The multimedia material of the multimedia concerts is produced by the Nagymajor Brigade of Városmajor, who assist the band in many other areas.
Fugato grew up in the gymnasium and gained a number of successful concerts in Budapest and in the countryside. Today they regularly attend festivals, cultural homes, literary and film festivals.............

The survival of large-scale art projects is not an easy task in the age of information accessibility. Especially, if we are talking about an orchestra. However, the unique Hungarian band Fugato Orchestra achieves a miraculous way not only to stay afloat, but also to move forward, to new creative discoveries. The course on eclecticism, taken by Balash Alpar's team (keyboards, vocals) in 2004, was continued as the second detailed work "NOÉ". The interstyle crossover-approach has turned into a fundamental principle for the participants of the formation. And let the nose-purists wrinkle their noses, guardians for purity. In the case of Fugato, one can not help admitting the main thing: their combination multi-genre computations are blossomed by the undoubted composer talent and delicate taste of Maestro Balash, who "made porridge" with the sole purpose - to present to the listener the possibility of a real musical adventure. Well, we follow and we are behind the White Rabbit.
Opening the disc, the little thing "Pangari" differs in the breadth of the range, which absorbed cutting-edge electronic trends, the rhythm of the traditional Madyar dance, the cinematic symphonic background and the melodic vocal lines without words. In comparison with such an unusual work, the 8-minute design of "Hétnyolcad / Seven-Eighths", which combines the nobility of classicism with progressive "wrap-up", looks much more characteristic for Alpar's children. Celtic coloring imbues etude "Irish Coffee", in the center of which are excellent flute passages of Christie Lukas and Sylvia Marshall, diluted with jazz pianissimo mastermind. The echoes of the ancient Welsh legend come to life in a small, richly detailed orchestral play "Nalvorelda"; The magic of Fugato is felt here to the fullest. "Ébredés / Awakening" - a serious application for the avant-garde of the modernist plan; It seems that in this four-minute segment, Balash managed to finally realize the hidden ambitions and create something that was unusual to him earlier. Very semi-academic sketch "Interlude - Nalvorelda remix" and difficult to identify hypnotic progression "Tatiosz / Tatius" is quite not bad. The dramatic interlude "Világsíró Asszony / The Timeless Wheeper" stands out with a distinct urge for "theatricality", while the nearby "Csak egy népdal / Just a folk song" is an intricate experience in the synthesis of folk-style folk ballad with polyphonic arrangement arrangements. Grace and Mozartian lacy ease captures the philharmonic-oriented issue "Játszótér / Playground", and his closest neighbor "Joke" demonstrates excellent symphonic fusion conditions. A beautiful song story "Amália dala / Amália's song", figuratively speaking, a resting place in front of the concept-ending - the title epic "NOÉ / NOAH" - a supermassive sound-ark erected by Alpar and Co. to envy other colleagues in the workshop.
I summarize: an unusually entertaining and, in a good way, an original sound excursion capable of meeting the aspirations of the heterogeneous layers of the progressive community. Highly recommend.....................

The melding of the apparent opposites of classical music and rock music is indeed a theme, which is being addressed in Progressive Rock again and again. At the beginning of 2012, the Spaniards Kotebel were very successful from the direction of a rock band and set a milestone with the album "Concerto for Piano and Electric Ensemble". The Fugato Orchestra from Hungary has been active since 2000 and has released its debut album "Neander Variations" in 2004. The Hungarians - led by composer and keyboarder Bálasz Alpár - approach the whole orchestra. 15 musicians currently form the core of the ensemble, with the addition of temporary guests, preferably singing.

The second album - "Noé" - the Fugato Orchestras continues the debut style, refining and optimizing the whole thing. The Hungarians lead us through musical worlds, in which the modern classical ensemble, romantic classicism, jazz harmonies, pulsating rock passages (with occasional rhythmic anomalies), Celtic folk, orchestral-symphonic keyboard sounds And - yes! - modernist electro-beats and triphop sounds come together side by side, intertwined, intertwined. The Fugato Orchestra relies on crisp ensemble playing and unflappable melodies. And on occasional gimmicks and humorous ideas, e.g. The quote of the "Axel F" theme in the second track. The highlight is the final title track, in which the Hungarians unfurl their full range, celebrate symphonic passages and cheerfully rejoice the brass section.

It is also sung, and also with a 'classical' appearance, perhaps not directly opern singing, but nevertheless more clearly pointing in this direction, because in the direction of rock-shouting. The singing underscores the hybrid character of the music.

The Fugato Orchestra, like Kotebel, succeeds in the fusion of classical music and rock music very organically. "Noé" is listening pleasure of a special kind. As with the debut one would still wish that the Hungarians occasionally a bit more daring and somewhat less melody-loving act (I would still be a guitarist who occasionally times with a few aggressive riffs the orchestra stirring up). There is still a bit of development air up, otherwise "Noé" is a very recommendable album.

The review I write, by the way, only now (2012), because it actually took two years (and then also due to a coincidence) that I learned about the existence of this album. So much for marketing, where progressive rock bands and labels have yet to learn a Kohlruß..............
