Duo Azar (2019): Bach & Hindemith

Cover of Duo Azar (2019): Bach & Hindemith

Duo Azar: Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach, saxophone & Wenjiao Wang, piano
Special guest: Pierre Lenert, Viola Soloist of the Paris National Opera Orchestra
Paraty Label – PIAS Harmonia Mundi 2019. Released September 6th, 2019.

Works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Paul Hindemith.

The compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach and those of Paul Hindemith are highly complementary and make natural bedfellows on a recording. Simply and sincerely yet boldly and freely, the Duo Azar has juxtaposed transcriptions of two sonatas for flute and harpsichord by Bach with sonatas for oboe and piano and for horn (or saxophone) and piano and the rare Trio by Hindemith – for whom Bach was a source of inspiration. © Serge Soufflard, Viola Soloist of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris
