When the metal and classical music together ... Known for having already released five albums and a live instrumental, Patrick Rondat is a guitarist of many talents. He has never hidden his passion for classical music. In making the acquaintance of musician Herve N'Kaoua this project to unite electric guitar and acoustic piano for performances of classical themes has finally taken shape. An accomplished pianist, first prize at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris, Herve N'Kaoua been developing for several years an international career as soloist and recitalist. It is with this partner has an impressive resume that Rondat has carefully selected the works that make up this disc. Drawn from the directories of Beethoven, Faure (sonatas), Kreisler (Prelude and Allegro), Vivaldi (Winter of the 4 seasons), Mozart (the opening of The Marriage of Figaro), these pieces originally written for piano and violin, have was recorded live and in duet. An exercise and a novel approach that shatter the boundaries that some had been put up between two musical worlds, a priori, if different.
