From Mompou to Bartók
Sergi Sirvent, piano
David Viñolas, drums
These two musicians join this duo project, with the goal of playing the music of Frederic Mompou and Béla Bartók, two composers that influenced them in several ways.
They perform the music using the vocabulary of jazz and improvisation, in a rare format in classical music.
The repertorire is mostly from the álbum “Música Callada” (F.Mompou) and “Mikrokosmos” (B.Bartók).
Mompou compositiones give more the impressionistic and colorfull plaette to the duet, with those amazing harmonies and voice leading, and Bartók gives the rhyhm and intervalic choices.
