ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sumptuous, elegant, and unforgettable, Measure for Measure is one Josu Gallastegui’s most popular recordings for ballet. When Dance Magazine's Marian Horosko reviewed the album on its initial release, she praised Josu’s "bright, clear, crisp sound" and his "brilliant concert-level capacity, full of phrasing and dynamics." Measure for Measure’s 24 selections range from an elegant excerpt from Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto to Saint-Saens haunting Introduction to Bizet's exuberant Gypsy Song from Carmen. Gallastegui selected the music and arranged it expressly for ballet class; the album features repeated tracks for barre exercises and complete information on tempo and length for teachers.
If you’re not familiar with Josu Gallastegui ’s music, Measure for Measure is the perfect introduction. The pianist has won the acclaim of celebrated dancers and teachers from around the world. Mikhail Baryshnikov says that Josu is “a superb musician with a remarkable sensitivity for ballet.” Gelsey Kirkland considers his her "favorite ballet accompanist." Josu is a frequent pianist at the legendary ballerina’s Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet in New York, and she says she is “delighted that his recordings are now available to teachers and students around the country." Cynthia Gregory is another of Josu’s many admirers. "He is a wonderful pianist. When he plays for class, I am inspired to work harder and dance better. I think he's the best around."
