After the success of the first CD, the duo Piano Meets Vibes presents its second release, Duo Fantasie. The path taken on the first silver disk, creating tonal worlds and relating intelligent but not intellectual musical stories and pictures, is continued on the new work in an even more intensive and consistent manner. An inspired mixture of jazz, folk, minimal music and Latin forms the foundation for the expressive compositions by the two musicians.
The direct relationship between the titles and the compositions makes it possible for the listener to easily immerse himself in the music and experience it as personal images.
In an exciting, melancholy, playfully happy, as well as meditative, way, personal experiences have been turned into sounds here. A fulminate tango, the moving ballad about the sudden death of a friend (Ballad for André), the hypnotic-mediative minimal music (Mimicry), as well as the virtuoso translation of experienced inspiration (Aziza, Duo Fantasie) are just a few examples of the greatly diversified and expressive character of this new CD by Piano Meets Vibes.
The composing and playing experience from the seven years of their musical working relationship reach a new peak on this production.
