“Duets” is a collaboration of two most active members of Siberian community of musicians and improvisers. Luchansky and Stolyar played together for some years, mainly in groups organized by Siberian new jazz patriarch, Sergey Belichenko. Together they played with well-known improvisers who visited Novosibirsk: Assif Tsahar, Oliver Lake, Glen Hall, William Parker. That is why at the time of duet album recording the musicians were сo-ordinated perfectly and spoke the same language, even multiple-languages of contemporary free improvisation. Inquisitive listener will find different things in the music of duet: radical “non-idiomology” originating from Derek Bailey, meditative modality, minimalism, sonorous techniques and bright melodic lines. All pieces from the album contrast sharply with each other, but at the same time they are the parts of unified whole, as from a fancy curls of pattern imprinted on the window on a cold day, revealing a fabulous picture of exotic Siberian nature for many people.
