Not knowing beforehand what’s going to happen in the next seconds creates immense suspense and is an adventure repeatedly embarked upon by Wulfin Lieske and Fabian Spindler – in every rehearsal, every recital and also with every recording. Their collaboration, which started in 2007, focuses on the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Domenico Scarlatti, Isaac Albéniz, Manuel de Falla, also contemporary compositions by Ross Edwards and Astor Piazzolla.
To celebrate the 150th birthday of the composer Isaac Albéniz in 2010, the duo has recorded this CD with transcriptions of his piano works. Modern music is represented on the CD with “Bottom’s Dream”: as well as the artPop suite of the same name by Wulfin Lieske, moreover, sounds of Asia can be heard in works by the Australian Ross Edwards. The CD also includes the “Tango Suite” – Astor Piazzolla’s breathtaking masterpiece – and the jazz ballad “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” by Charles Mingus.
A special highlight can be heard in the concerts of the two guitarists with the Mongolian singer and horsehead violinist Fu-Zhu Men.
