Barre Phillips / György Kurtág Jr

Face á Face (CD)

The improvised music on double bass and avant-garde electronic music from György Kurtág Jr. – son of the greatest contemporary Hungarian composer – share a deep passion for creating music in the moment. With his subtle use of synthesizers and digital percussion, György shapes ever-changing spaces for Barre Phillips - an acoustic labyrinth - that are clearly illuminated in Manfred Eicher's detailed mix. A thoroughly mesmerising album, Face à Face was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the south of France.
