CLAIRE ANTONINI : Theorbo
RENAUD GARCIA-FONS : 5 strings double bass
Renaud Garcia-Fons & Claire Antonini, two exceptional musicians, formed a duo several years ago.
Bassist Renaud García-Fons has often played with Claire Antonini, an expert in early music and the theorbar. 19 miniatures adorn the fine duo album Farangi, which resembles an imaginative Eurasian journey. It extends the timbres of the two instruments deep into Iran, to Kurdistan or Syria, but it can also - in a charming chaconne - sound quite courtly-Baroque.
