Crothers, Connie / David Arner
Spontaneous Suite For Two Pianos [4 CD Box Set]

Crothers, Connie / David Arner: Spontaneous Suite For Two Pianos [4 CD Box Set] (RogueArt)
Label: RogueArt    
Released in: France    


"It was magical from the beginning. The music seemed to create itself" "We trusted our spontaneity, our intuitive logic, our sense of form." "We had no set tempos, no preconception about soloing or accompanying." "We had no set themes or referents. What we did have was complete trust, in each other and in the music." "Playing through the day, we recorded twenty-eight pieces. We did listen together for many months, before we accepted that the entire recording session produced a single, cohesive work." "During the recording session, we switched pianos every two to four improvisations. Listening back, we discovered that we had created distinct suites of pieces each time we traded pianos." "These four CDs present the entire recording session, in order, from our first note to the last note."-Connie Crothers, David Arner



12 page booklet with liner notes by Steve Dalychinsky, and color photos of the performers.
