An unusual setting for this long-running jazz partnership – a double-length record that has the saxes of DaveLiebman and the piano of RichieBeirach improvising on a number of themes borrowed from classical music – compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Bartok, and others – all really transformed by the sensitive genius of the pair! The album's not one of those slavish readings of classical compositions by a jazz musicians – and, if anything, the open, improvised quality of the music really deviates a lot from the scores – using them more for inspiration, and as a way to hit some of the more sensitive qualities of both musicians, especially Liebman. Dave plays soprano, tenor, and c-flute – and the entire second half of the album is based on Bartok string quartets. CD
