For over ten years already, this nylon-string duo has been proving that in the field of top-level guitar-playing, standards, seriousness and the relaxed joy of playing are not mutually exclusive. These two graduates from the Conservatory of Music of Dresden have applied intuitive harmony, fascinating technique and impressive dynamism to define their own individual style, which is situated between modern classical, South American music and contemporary jazz.
Until now, their albums were marked mainly by “duologue”, but with their new work, Nassler & Schneider have fulfilled a long-coveted dream: To expand their acoustic cosmos with creative instrumentalists who enrich their performance with piano, percussion, soprano saxophone, cajon, calimba and double bass, in order to set “intensive states of mind, travel impressions and split-second images of everyday life” to music. The result is a colorful album full of surprises, which, on the one hand, one can listen to seriously, or just as easily let oneself be carried away with the sheer pleasure of it.
