Description

Poetry of Rhythm on CD

As Goethe put it: "Everything poetic should be treated rhythmically. That is my firm conviction." The structure of "The Poetry of Rhythm" is shaped by two clear-cut levels. The pure duet pieces are characterized by a genuine sound image with every compositional refinement. After a great number of concerts together the duet´s "common breathing" can be clearly noticed. Here jazz is an attitude and not just a style. After that are the pieces with the classical, i.e. non-improvising string quartet. They are not just used as a completion or pleasant background music, but rather in a compositional way as an active and structure-characterizing element. Rhythmical tension in the meaning of "movement in time" is a very important basis in the cooperation with "kaj: kaj- das streichquartett". But: Niescier & Nendza pragmatically avoid the infamous question "is classic able to swing!?". There are simply no triplet feel jazz pieces. With "The Poetry of Rhythm" Angelika Niescier & André Nendza are walking consciously into musical no man's land. There, where you are always falling between two stools, live can be pretty pleasant. Provided you own a map.
