Duets from thousand years of musical history for young people from 0-100 years.

“Consider everything an experiment. One shouldn‘t go to the woods looking for something, but rather to see what is there. Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating”. John Cage

Over the past few years, Patricia Kopatchinskaja has exploded the norms of the classical violin. Her highly personal – even extreme – interpretations of the great classics leave no one indifferent and fascinate the public, which adores her generosity and commitment on the concert platform, her taste for new musical creations and pieces from off the beaten track.

Now the barefoot violinist invites us to join her in a unique musical experience that mixes composers of the seventeenth (and even the eleventh!) century with living composers, a clarinettist playing the ocarina, an improvisatory harpsichordist, an electro musician, a toy piano... Here is Patricia Kopatchinskaja totally at liberty, playing, singing, dialoguing with her musician friends, but also with her daughter Alice, in a CD-book that tells the story of this utterly crazy recording with the help of a rich selection of photos by Marco Borggreve.

‘Free imagination, without constraints or rules’: the word ‘Fantasy’ finds its ideal musical illustration with Take Two!

BBC Music Magazine

February 2016


“Some of the disc's most fruitful music-making involves Kopatchinskaja with clarinettist Reto Bieri, including a feisty conjunction of sparky violin and liquid clarinet in Milhaud's Jeu. The commendably adventurous programme can make us eavesdroppers on a personal aural journal, with the sound of folk fiddle often present”

The Guardian

26th November 2015

“This is a typically quirky project from Patricia Kopatchinskaja: two dozen duets for violinist and another player (or speaker), spanning 1,000 years. It’s inspired by her 10-year-old daughter and the emphasis is on music as play…a chunk of serious Vivier holds up the flow, but this disc is meant to be fun, and it almost entirely is.”
