Although Debussy’s music was full of chords featured in contemporary jazz, as well as polyrhythmic, and his writing style suggested the improvisation spontaneity, he didn’t improvise. The works he composed on the texts of Paul Verlaine and other poets are seen in new light thanks to the air-light Anastasia Razvalyaeva’s harp and Veronica Harcsa’s declamatory vocals, while Márton Fenyvesi’s live electronics essentially change the paradigm. Just as Debussy abandoned centuries-old conventions to create the authentic sound experience of works of art and poetry, these three musicians transcend classical interpretation with stylistic innovations aimed at today’s audiences.
Although Debussy’s music was full of chords featured in contemporary jazz, as well as politics, and his writing style suggested the improvisation spontaneity, he didn’t improvise. While this trio does it all the time. Harcsa, one of the leading European jazz singers, is versed in improvisation and uses her virtuosity to emphasize the content of the lyrics. Razvalyaeva used to play mainly classical music, and now she discovers the whole new universe of improvisation with great enthusiasm. Fenyvesi adds the final twist with real-time sound effects and ambiences. Instead of venturing into electronics, they draw our attention to the multidimensional aspect of music, conveying the atmosphere of churches, the sea and open fields.
