4 stars Italian ensemble BREZNEV FUN CLUB is the creative vehicle of composer and musician Rocco Lomonaco. From what I understand, he has composed material of various kinds ever since the early '90s, and formed the Breznev Fun Club as the vehicle to record his works. Two albums have been released under this moniker to date. "Il Misantropo Felice" is the most recent of these, released by the Italian label Altrock Records in 2015.

I experience and understand the music of Breznev Fun Club as contemporary classical music first and foremost, and a fairly challenging example of that type of music as such. Elements from jazz, avant-garde progressive rock and chamber rock are incorporated into this greater whole, and while my experience is that these are supplemental details, one might easily argue otherwise as well. That depends on the ears and mind of the listener, I guess, as well as musical knowledge: In that department my position as a listener without theoretical or musical training otherwise may well leave me with a disadvantage. Still, those with a taste for challenging contemporary music within the boundaries described are well advised to seek out this production, as I suspect most with a taste for challenging escapades within those territories should find this album to be a rewarding experience.
