The second album from the Hungarian-born Vienna-based guitarist Zsófia Boros finds her embracing a broad scope of music, broader even than on her outstanding debut ‘En Otra Parte’.

This time the range extends from contemporary composition to jazz ballad via music from Brazil, Argentina, Italy and Azerbaijan – all embraced with imagination and creative flair. Pieces played here by Zsófia Boros include Egberto Gismonti’s challenging Celebração de Núpcias (made famous on Dança das cabeças), Franghiz Ali-Zadeh’s Fantasie, Al Di Meola’s Vertigo Shadow, and Carlo Domeniconi’s Turkish-influenced Koyunbaba suite while other composers include the Azerbaijani, Franghiz Ali-Zadeh, and the Argentinian classical guitarist Jorge Cardoso.

These Local Objects – the title comes from a poem by Wallace Stevens – are rendered universal by Boros’s subtle and sensitive playing in an album recorded at Lugano’s Auditorio Stelio Molo in November 2015 and produced by Manfred Eicher.
