Sylvie Courvoisier and Mark Feldman are partners both in their professional and personal lives. The Swiss pianist is known for her participation e.g. in the Mephista trio with Susie Ibarra and Ikue Mori; collaborations with John Zorn (on many occasions, e.g. Masada Marathon, Cobra), Tomasz Stańko and Fred Frith; and also for her own recordings for ECM and Tzadik. "All Music Guide" described Courvoisier's music as "beautiful and mysterious". Mark Feldman, a violinist regularly recording and performing live with his wife, can be heard on a number of Zorn's albums; he has also collaborated with Marc Ribot and Dave Douglas. Aside from jazz and avant-garde, his musical interests span contemporary classical (both as a performer and composer), and even… country.
The first part of the concert will be filled with a dialogue between the piano and the violin. In the second part, we will hear the first performance of Mark Feldman's Super Slab Multiverse (special festival commission), and a new arrangement of Courvoisier's Lazuline. The duo will be accompanied by Polish string musicians – Marcin Markowicz, Jan Mazur, Michał Micker and Maciej Młodawski.
