One piano, two musicians, four hands - music at the crossroads of minimalism, chamber music, contemporary jazz and improvisation. In their new duo, the jazz pianist Christian Mendoza and classically-trained pianist Heleen Van Haegenborgh explore Bach's oeuvre, starting from Kurtág's transcriptions for four hands. This inspired them to make their own music, a mixture of compositions and improvisation. The result is a meeting of two worlds, a unique symbiosis of age-old music and the constant urge for renewal felt by two present-day improvisers. Copper, their debut album, is released on the W.E.R.F. label, a mark of quality in Belgian jazz since 1993. Includes printed inner sleeve and download code.
