Water & Fire
Two distinguished and internationally renowned figures of the Belgian musical scene have joined forces for an exciting new project: Didier Laloy (accordion) and Quentin Dujardin (guitar) present their first common album Water & Fire.
The original compositions defy rigid genre definitions and range somewhere between jazz, classical, folk and film music. A dialogue between water and fire, born during a serious of work residencies in the Belgian studio of Agua Music, an intense musical moment where space and time come to a standstill and allow the adventure of a common hand.
Two at first sight rather contrary characters have started to search for a possibile understanding between hot and cold, taking the risk of connecting two different conceps of musical approach. Romanesque encounters Baroque and results in a wonderfully melodic and vivid album. These two artists perfectly complement each other – expressivity blends with intensity and offers us fiery and at the same time glacial sound emotions.
Water & Fire represents a return to the discographic origins of the two leaders: „We believe in this eternal moment of creation. What immense joy to share our music! The most important remain our personal enrichment and the freedom each of us gains by taking risks, for which this project is a wonderful example.“
