Jacques Dupriez and Thomas Bloch play the barytone violin and the glassharmonica in duet.
There is only one barytone-violin played in concert today by Jacques Dupriez (France - Belgium). It is the ideal instrument which deep and colourfull sound is situated between the viola and the cello. The association with the very rare glassharmonica played by the french multi-intrumentalist virtuoso Thomas Bloch (ondes Martenot, glassharmonica, cristal Baschet) makes a unique duet.
The 2nd "Pièce dans le style classique" by César Espejo is recorded live in Belgium (2008).
