Quasi Improvisata - Works for Cello & Bajan

David Geringas, cello
Geir Draugsvoll, bajan

catalog number  21008

Every interpretation is, to a certain degree, an improvisation of a text which remains unseen to the listener. This is true of the works performed on this CD in a very particular way, because they are only partly written down and rely for the rest on the will and fantasy of the player.

The excellent duo - the cellist David Geringas and the Bajan (button accordion) player Geir Draugsvoll - draw their inspiration from quite different sources. But they also have something in common: they make each piece to an inspired "quasi improvisata"  which is forever unique.
