The enthusiastic audience demanded an encore. At first Fernandez scraped and manipulated the guts of his instrument to conjure resonant thrums and ghostly overtones. Though he kept looking to signal Guy to join, the bassist was lost in a reverie of concentration with eyes tight shut. Eventually they connected and Guy built on the mood with a finely honed tonal chiaroscuro, interspersed with flurries of abrasive arco work, until imperceptibly they metamorphosed into the Catalan's tender "Joan i Joanna" to bring a wonderful night to a perfect close.
