A phenomenal success when first performed in 2002, Una Odissea, inspired by a poem called Ithaca by the Greek poet Cavafy and by Homer’s Odyssey, was written by Italian tenor Marco Beasley and composer/harpsichordist Guido Morini at the invitation of the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble. Alfio Antico, a Sicilian percussionist and traditional singer, contributed the song Nessuno as well as the primordial sound of his frame drum, which is the heartbeat of the programme. It’s made available again in the UK as a companion recording to the NBE’s new album, Una Iliade.
