Sylvie Courvoisier, piano + Mary Halvorson, guitar & Mark Feldman, violin
Pianist Sylvie Courvoisier returns to Sound It Out with a double-bill of duos, featuring kindred-spirit violinist Mark Feldman and the fantastic guitarist Mary Halvorson. About her long-running duo with her violinist husband, Chamber Music America said: “Courvoisier and Feldman create personalized musical abstractions that – like a Giacometti sculpture or a Pollack painting – transport the listener to a space where the rules may not be apparent but the emotional response sure is.”
The Feldman-Courvoisier duo will perform the world premiere of Sylvie’s Chamber Music America New Jazz Work commission, “Time Gone Out.” As for the duo of Sylvie and Mary Halvorson, they have their first duo album, “Crop Circles,” just out on Relative Pitch. The Wall Street Journal has described the ever-exploratory yet ever-popular Halvorson as “one of the most exciting and original guitarists in jazz – or otherwise.”
