In this clip Liebezeit talks about emptying his mind to concentrate on playing the pieces and Friedman about the music simply evoking the image of the musician that is playing it, seeing the characters in the pieces that “appear and disappear”. This unique duo connect to music in such a way as to mesmerise the […]
