Two instrumental trios from different musical worlds collide in a bold musical encounter that pitches virtuoso jazz against the beauty of Baroque. The leading French jazz clarinettist Louis Sclavis and the adventurous Amarillis ensemble meet head-on in an unlikely but richly rewarding fusion of ancient and modern. From exquisite Baroque classics by Telemann, Handel and Purcell to the breathtaking jazz improvisations they inspire, this is a journey into uncharted musical waters driven by period poise and the syncopated sophistication of jazz.
