Description:2002 GRAMMY Best Classical Crossover Album nominee!

Arguably the most talented, accomplished and celebrated jazz vibraphonist ever, Gary Burton has made more than a few important duo recordings, most notably with pianist Chick Corea. His partner in this tremendous album, GRAMMY-nominated Virtuosi, is supremely talented Japanese pianist Makoto Ozone, who was once Burton's student at Berklee College of Music.

Having worked together many times since then, they decided to do a duo album performing classical music in their own way. They chose an intriguing collection of pieces, some well known and others not, by a variety of composers ranging from Brahms, Ravel and Rachmaninoff to Gershwin, Zez Confrey and Jorge Cardozo.

True virtuosi of their respective instruments, they have no problem executing demanding passages with precision and at a blinding speed, and their telepathetic "togetherness" is something to behold. But what truly makes this album great is their jazz sensibilities and imaginative improvisation. They are jazz musicians to the core and approaching the classical music from that viewpoint, not the other way around.

This instant classic CD is now reissued and made available on great-sounding SHM-CD! Strongly recommended to jazz fans who are curious about classical music, or classical music lovers who are also interested in jazz!

Recorded August and October, 2001. This SHM-CD edition released in Japan in May, 2010. SHM-CD utilizes a special polycarbonate material to enhance sound quality, and is compatible with all CD players.
