Playing in Tonhalle Dusseldorf with Igudesman&Joo

It was again a great honor to perform on one stage with Igudesman & Joo in their project “Basar Bizarr” in Tonhalle Dusseldorf together with other great musicians, but especially with Veronika Vitazkova, with whom and with her wind instruments we went through the moods of the whole world!

‘BASAR BIZARR’ BY AND WITH IGUDESMAN & JOO – 2.10.2021 – TONHALLE DUSSELDORF

ALEKSEY IGUDESMAN – violin
HYUNG-KI JOO – piano
PETR SPATINA – Glass harp
CHRISTOPH STRADNER – violoncello
SOME HANDSOME HANDS
VERONIKA VITAZKOVA – Woodwind instruments
PETER LUHA – Guitar and loop station

Under the motto “Basar Bizarr”, Igudesman & Joo bring a wide variety of talents, disciplines, heavenly and musical directions to one stage and give an outlook on humorous entertainment, virtuosity at the highest level and a lot of improvisation. The two comedy heroes are looking forward to their guests: the Czech musician Petr Spatina not only opens up new worlds of sound with a sophisticated technique on 33 wine glasses, but also world-spanning horizons in his compositions. The somewhat different piano trio Some Handsome Hands unites three pianists with the courage to be close to a grand piano. With wit and virtuosity, they bring almost everything to the keys. Most of them know him as the solo cellist of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and cellist of the Altenberg Trio Vienna – but Christoph Stradner will present undreamt-of talents for the first time at the Bizarre bazaar. Veronika Vitazkova is a flutist who lives in Vienna and loves to convey her passion for music through different genres, styles and woodwind instruments from all over the world and to put traditional, half-forgotten instruments in a new light. Peter Luha creates a varied sound mix using different playing techniques on the guitar and, with his Loop Station, brings in percussive beats, recurring sound patterns and improvisation in equal measure.

Lucia Briestenska’s debut album is coming out – January 13, 2017

Debut album of young Slovak singer Lucia Briestenska is coming out on Friday January 13, 2017!

The whole album was completely in my music production – I made arrangements, recorded all instruments – acoustic and electric guitars, bass, mandolin, flute, violin, percussion, keyboard and even wind instruments and keyboards via MIDI guitar and programmed drums..

The album will be very colorful and multi-genre from folk, gypsy jazz, modern country, rock, pop to funk. In collaboration with Peter Szabados from studio Sabik we have made efforts to the best possible sound. Lucy’s voice sounds fantastic, even in one song we sang a duet.
We also invited to the three songs really interesting guests! 😉
