Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Dez Cordas is an unusual duo for double bass and classical guitar that performs an eclectic mix of musical styles from tango to jazz to baroque. Both musicians are classically trained, yet show their diverse musical roots in pieces by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, jazz pianist Chick Corea and their own original compositions. As a chamber duo, Dez Cordas shares melodic material equally, without relegating one member to a permanently accompanying role. Audiences will hear soaring highs and deep lows from both instruments, creating an almost orchestral sound from just two instruments.
