Waterloo Records

For their third recording for label Stradivarius, the duo singer & fischer have chosen to devote themselvesto four Hispanic flavored works. With little original repertoire despitethe opuses that various composershave written for them in recent years transcriptions,arrangements and other adaptations are usual inthe ensemble's work. However, not all works are easy to adapt, and the choice of pieces from among the'possibilities' is often a difficult one. The transcriptions on this recording are the result of a process ofreflection that goes back to the duo's genesis. Their first attempts at de Falla or Granados took place inthe 90s, a time when the youthfulness of the performerscertainly contributed to the enthusiasm essentialto any musical interpretation, but when a lack of experience was abrake on any idea of immortalizing theirconcert attempts.Since then, the singer & fischer duo have taken the time to mature, and this latest recording is the resultof over thirty years of playing together. Whether in terms of sound timbre, phrasing or balance, the ensemblehas achieved a musical union made possible by it's longevity, proof that despite all the accelerationand frenzy in today's world, some goals take time.
