Harmonia Ensemble & Kočani Orkestar - Ulixes (2002)

A seemingly unlikely, but highly successful collaboration among Italian experimental cameristic group Harmonia Ensemble and Macedonian gypsy brass band Kočani Orkestar. Project and production by Giampiero Bigazzi. Inspired by ten poems by Roberto Beccastrini about Ulixes. Preface by Umberto Galimberti. Italian and English texts. More on this project here. Highly recommended.

«But what is ethical about Ulixes, hero of lies, cunning and uninterrupted wandering? Actually, there is a lot, in fact perhaps the only hint of ethics feasible in our times…» (From the liner notes)
