Description

From ABC Classics:

Concerto of The Greater Sea showcases not only Joseph’s incredible instrumental skill, but also his talents as a composer. As well as seven tracks for Oud and orchestra, Tawadros performs his original six-movement suite ‘The Greater Sea’ in a quartet with Australian jazz piano legend Matt McMahon, ACO Principal Viola Chris Moore, and percussion prodigy James Tawadros, Joseph’s brother and closest collaborator. Orchestra and quartet together complete a single, delicate emotional journey, with the Oud at the heart of the album, weaving the two musical worlds into one.

Joseph speaks of the concept behind this album: “I have always been fond of the sea, its movement, its silence, its energy and its freedom, and the new compositions are about being immersed in this. The ocean represents a return to oneself, a rediscovery, an emotional reinvention, musically, spiritually and beyond.”
