Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Duo Podeur-Bass returns with a long-awaited album. After their albums Rameau and Handel, highly appreciated by both the pubic and the critic, the duo makes us live in the South American hour. The ballet of Ginastera, flamboyant and epic, takes us on a journey with the gauchos of the pampas, their work, their loves, often with frantic rhythms, interrupted by moments of almost immobility. The transcription delivered by the Duo Podeur-Bass of the Seasons of Piazzolla is tinged with decidedly urban accents, with its exacerbated rhythms. The sound of the harpsichord and the richness of its technical possibilities appear here as a generous source of creativity. The Duo Podeur-Bass returns with a long-awaited album.
