Composed By – Lucas Niggli, Sylvie Courvoisier. 2. Miniature I. Composed By – Lucas Niggli, Sylvie Courvoisier.

This album of miniatures by percussionist Lucas Niggli and pianist Sylvie Courvoisier is a selection of 14 spontaneous compositions that concern themselves with the entire color spectrum of the percussive element, insofar as it relates to tonality, accent, and timbre between a piano and a percussion mélange that includes drums, both trap and hand, gongs, boxes, cymbals, metal bowls, shakers, marimbas, etc. Courvoisier is the perfect foil for Niggli in her halting approach to anything resembling melody, or harmony. Her concern is always rhythm.

Here, Swiss-based percussionist Lucas Niggli teams with compatriot pianist Sylvie Courvoisier for a series of duet improvisations that offer varying degrees of nuance, subtleties and altogether cunning if not striking ingenuity. On the title track, Lavin Lucas Niggli smartly or should we say – sonorously, utilizes his seemingly vast array of cymbals in tandem with Ms Courvoisier’s bowing and plucking of her piano strings which to some extent hearkens or elicits thoughts of the minimalist movement. Here, the duo are quite skillful while providing an abundance of tonal coloration along with acute displays of timbre through refined and sensitive interplay.
