DISCOGRAPHY

2003 - Forever

This meditative album is caressing and penetrating into the inner of the soul. Sometime a very expressive saxophone part is suddenly alternating with relaxing and beautiful romantic piano tones. A very strong melodic line of this CD is a mixture of classical and jazz elements. This project is characterized of a musical maturity and creativity of both artists, especially when they're leading an extraordinary musical and intellectual dialogue.
