Notes and Editorial Reviews
Since the late 1980's, Carla Kihlstedt and Satoko Fuji have been at the forefront of New Music, performing, recording and touring in Big Bands, rock groups, jazz bands, classical ensembles and improvisational units all over the world. They now get together for a remarkable duo collaboration. This specially priced 2CD set presents compositions and improvisations for violin and piano by two of the most talented women in New Music. With one CD presenting the meticulous detail of the recording studio, and the other the wild passion and improvisational exploration of a live concert, this is new cutting edge chamber music for the 21st century.
