Intersec#ion - Classic Meets Jazz
Label: SOLO MUSICA
Format: COMPACT DISC
Pushing boundaries, daring to experiment and breaking new ground: through its extraordinary interpretations of arrangements and commissioned works, Ensemble Clazzic has found a musical language all its own. Sometimes filigree and playful, sometimes virtuosic or melancholic, but always rousing and unique. Four artists with roots in different musical genres find unity on stage, a melange of different styles and cultures. Baroque meets jazz, faithfulness to musical notation meets improvisation, beauty of sound meets new playing techniques. Founded in 2009 by flutist Martina Silvester and pianist Susanna Klovsky, the ensemble has since made a name for itself. The Russian-Israeli composer Uri Brener dedicated a suite to the ensemble that seems to have been written for them. Classical flute themes, for example, appear in a new, never-before-heard context. Accompanied by the grooving sound of the double bass, restructured by the rhythm of the drums and commented on by the sometimes jazzy, sometimes classically sparkling sound carpet of the piano. Chamber music with rules, but without a corset.
