Pedro Soler & Gaspar Claus – Al viento (Infiné Records)



Sublime and passionate instrumental music featuring the father and son duo taking Spanish guitar and cello on a vivid journey.

It’s unusual enough to hear a father and son duet, even more to hear such romance at the core. Although instrumental, it plays a thousand words.

Here’s an excellent line from the press release to go with the thrilling music.

“The sighs, outbursts, dips, elisions and surges of discord with which Claus' cello hooks the paternal elements breathe life once again into this improbable and mineral truth: if these two, the father and the son, were not always playing quite the same music during the sessions for the album, then they were certainly painting the same landscape.”
