is excited to release this second album from the dynamic duet ZOFO, Mosh Pit
, where Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi put their considerable keyboard skills to the test in an exciting, in-depth exploration of dance-inspired duet compositions by six distinctly American voices of the twentieth century – George Gershwin, Conlon Nancarrow, Allen Shawn, Samuel Barber, John Corigliano and Paul Schoenfield. With pieces ranging from waltz to tango to boogie and beyond, ZOFO’s high energy interpretations beg the question: Shall we dance?
The pieces featured on Mosh Pit
explore a wide range of evocative dance styles and rhythms, from Gershwin’s driving rumba in “Cuban Overture” to Barber’s sensuous “Hesitation-Tango” to Paul Schoenfield’s dizzying “Boogie” from Five Days from the Life of a Manic Depressive
. Drawing inspiration from classical, modern, jazz, and rock and roll forms, the Mosh Pit
repertoire and ZOFO’s inspired performances might tempt you to the dance floor.
ReviewsIndeed, each of the pieces have all of the qualities of an intricately-conceived and smoothly-running machine, the sort of music that puts modern ballet styles in the best possible light.
