Appearances by

Yuri Goloubev

New Duo album with Gwilym Simcock piano and Yuri Goloubev double bass. Recorded at Schloss Elmau.

It seems inevitable that the highly acclaimed, virtuosic pianist-composer Gwilym Simcock and multi-award winning double bassist-composer Yuri Goloubev would one day record together in a duo once their paths had crossed. That moment has come with the new recording Reverie at Schloss Elmau on the award-winning ACT label.One born in Wales, the other in Russia, most of Europe stands between them. But in terms of their musical journeys, they appear to have been leading parallel lives. Both were classical music prodigies and have world-class techniques on their respective instruments. Both of them were set on a lifelong career path in the concert hall, Goloubev the elder of the pair at 41, was for twelve years the principal double bassist for the Grammy-nominated Moscow Soloists, widely considered one of the most distinguished chamber ensemble in the world.

Reverie at Schloss Elmau is extraordinary

25/01/2014 Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

If there were a knife edge between jazz and classical music, then this whole album dances upon it like a high wire act of immeasurable daring. But, of course, itís more like a rich shared, overlapping land of high peaks and deep valleys, and Simcock and Goloubev, like Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli in their just finished TV series Italy Unpacked, are our generous and adventurous guides.

17/01/2014 Cormac Larkin, Irish Times 4 stars****

artfully blurs the lines between the written and the improvised, creating a sui generis music that sparkles with instrumental ťlan even as it tugs at the heartstrings

11/01/2014 Mike Hobart , FT 4 Stars****

The pairing of UK pianist Gwilym Simcock and Russian double-bassist Yuri Goloubev was something of a masterstroke

 

10/01/2014 John Fordham, The Guardian 4 stars****

Duo Art shimmers and dances with European art-music references, which surface in the elegant themes, the liquid movement of Simcock's improv phrasing, and Goloubev's astonishingly light-touch lyricism and cello-like purity.

 

10/01/2014 Metro

Itís a masterclass in duet playing and a pensively pleasurable exploration of the points at which the jazz and classical worlds meet.
