An outstanding good and well prepared album from the borderland between folk, jazz and classical It is an exceptionally beautiful album, Bjarke Falgren and Nikolaj Busk together have committed.
Duet is intense, quiet music from the borderland between folk, jazz and classical music. Written and performed by the two musicians who respectively play violin and piano.
Well, the album is released in the name of strangeness label – GO ‘Danish Folk Music – but there is nothing in the music specifically indicates that it is Danish, let alone can be categorized as a people.
The music is rather universal and cross genres from. Just that – and sound – is music quality. As a duo, the two musicians exceptionally good to each other; the challenges and develops openly each other’s expression and musicality; and what they create is uniquely beautiful and alluring.
In places dark and melancholic, in some places light and lively. Constant with total focus.
The two musicians, both of which are awarded in several contexts – both have received the Danish Music Awards – deserve Duet together to be awarded, for this is an outstanding good and well prepared album.
