sophie hassfurther oğuz büyükberber duo

Music on the border of notated source material and freely improvised Jazz. Tenor saxophonist Sophie Hassfurther and bass clarinetist Oğuz Büyükberber have collarborated in numerous projects for more than a decade. Two melodic instruments that rhythmically complement one another, move away from one another, only to find each other again in nimble unison lines.

“The playing of contemporary improvising bass clarinetist Oğuz Büyükberber intertwines with the agile saxophone playing of Viennese Sophie Hassfurther. An intense and different experience.”

Oliver Weindling, London Jazz News (UK)

“They play around each other, carrying each other, with musicality and deeply felt emotions as the highest good.”
