The most recent (and the last perhaps) of the Masada Anniversary series, "Masada Recital" is a chamber performance of Masada pieces by pianist Sylvie Courvoisier and violinist Mark Feldman operating in duet. The two musicians have developed a strong rapport that comes through on these records and the clever and delicate arrangements support a varied and abstract album.

Courvoisier is credited as arranger, and I'm guessing also selected the pieces-- she has largely taken a handful of Masada tunes that allow her to exhibit a sense of melancholy-- the recording bleeds a sort of neoclassical moodiness that belies its origins in the Masada project; the klezmer sound is extremely repressed on these. I actually find the feel of the recording closer instead to that of Beethoven's piano sonatas filtered through a minimalist arrangement and performed with a downtown sensibility. Space ends up being as important to the sound of the recording as any instrument is, and lines are unison, disjoint, and sometimes alternate between the two. Courvoisier limits herself not just to the keyboard, but the interior and body of the piano, strumming the strings, tapping them by hand, and even banging on the body of the instrument, whereas Feldman, so often obscured in presenting Masada pieces as part of the string trio, shows a dazzling array of both technique and patience-- the pieces come to him, he never forces the music.

I agree that Courvoisier's ABATON is a terrific album too-- & addition of Friedlander definitely changes the mood & 'palette.' However, with the Klezmer links here, the duet

interplay is perhaps a bit more 'accessible' and, well, lovely. SC shows a melodic side often only sketchy on other recordings-- not that I don't love her percussive work

too (her recordings with 'Mephista' are wonderful that way).

This shows a different side-- & also interesting to hear both

players as interpreters of JZ's subtle Masada work. No question he has expanded the 'klezmer' tradition, & this another fascinating chapter-- but also I think perfectly listenable in its own right to anyone who likes chamber jazz, or duet chamber music in general.
