A clarinet and guitar duo is an instrumental combination one seldom hears. This is remarkable considering that the clarinet’s timbre can be light and intimate, therefore very well-suited to the sound of the guitar. In Carrousel each piece has its own character and demands a different approach. The title ‘Carrousel’ is chosen as a symbol for this diversity.

Internationally renowned musicians Levan Tskhadadze (clarinet) and Izhar Elias (guitar) play their instruments with an incredible transparency, refined articulation and subtle musical colour. When playing they create their own story. Their music speaks as if they are having a conversation with each other through their instruments. This album, with its wide stylistic span, yet cohesive musical end result, is proof of these musicians’ mastery. And thanks to the sublime sound quality, every single inflection is audible.
