Bidaia: the journey of Federico Jusid and Iñaki Alberdi

It is not so much the goal we pursue that matters, but enjoying the way to reach it. This is part of the message that the Greek poet Constantine Cavafis intended to convey in his poem Ithaca and the composer Federico Jusid has based himself on it to create Bidaia, journey in Basque, a concert piece for accordion and symphonic orchestra for the accordionist Iñaki Alberdi. The two have been on La Hora Azul to talk about this transition and about this work which, after its premiere in 2022 in Buenos Aires, is now collected on a CD with a recording made with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, conducted by Jusid himself. In this podcast you will find everything they told us.
