About

Over 20,000 discs sold, more than 220 concerts at home and abroad (including in France and China), two extensive tours... those are just a few examples of the successes gained by the Gipsy Way project in the wake of the 2008 album Pavel Šporcl recorded with his Gipsy band.

Six years down the line, in tandem with Supraphon, the violinist held two concerts at Prague’s legendary Domovina Studio, whose fruit is a new CD, 'Gipsy Fire'.

Stepping into the same river twice? Well, yes and no. On the new release, a succession of technically challenging 'Gipsy' repertoire pieces are blended with catchy and melancholic film melodies (Grand blond avec une chaussure noire and Fiddler on the Roof, and a theme Pavel recorded for the Czech movie Divided We Fall), and Piazzolla’s beautiful breathtaking prayer Ave Maria.

Pavel and the Gipsy Way Ensemble play as if their very lives depended on it and the audience’s frenzied response would indicate that they don’t want the music to ever stop. Well, that’s not a problem with a CD.

Gipsy Fire – a geyser of unbridled energy and engrossing virtuosity, a stroke of pure beauty.

Recorded in Prague at the Domovina Studio, June 16 and 17, 2014.
