sylvie courvoisier - ned rothenberg
We're sorry to inform you that due to COVID19 and the Belgian red zone Sylvie and Ned had to decide to cancel the two concerts in Belgium this fall. Stay with us, big chance she'll be back in April!
Sylvie Courvoisier - piano
Ned Rothenberg - clarinet and bass clarinet
Pianist Sylvie Courvoisier is back! After a COVID19 cancellation in the early Spring, Courvoisier will have a short Belgian stay end of October. An exceptional opportunity to check out the Courvoisier-Rothenberg duo at Walter.
Sylvie Courvoisier and Ned Rothenberg have a history of highly sympathetic improvisational collaborations going back over 20 years of live performance and exemplified by their trio album with Mark Feldman, In Cahoots, on the Clean Feed Label. Each extends the musical language of his/her instrument through a highly personal vocabulary allowing them to play roles outside the standard ones (single line melodies for horns, chordal accompaniment for piano) and create a dialogue which operates on many musical planes simultaneously and may imply a wide variety of idioms without settling firmly in any of them. Now, as people have had to isolate in this Covid-19 period they decided to be in each others ‘pod’ and work on a program of duo music including new co-written composed and improvised materials, contributions from each of their catalogues and some of their favorite tunes by others. 2 composer/performers with vast international experience between them thus endeavor to create a new chapter in Creative Music.
