“...exceptional stage presence...both played from memory throughout...
a deeply emotional experience...intoxicating...full of
boundless and invigorating energy...”
In recent years Wissam has established an inspired duo partnership with pianist Aleksander Szram which is helping define a new standard for the Art of collaborative music making:
They BOTH perform from memory in their recitals and recordings (see This Invisible World).
A very rare phenomenon on the recital scene, this total engagement with the music transforms the recital into a powerful and intimate experience shared between performer and listener. Every gesture and nuance is magnified and intensified.
This approach brings the adventure and thrill back into music-making.
“...the boundary between the stage and the audience became
invisible as we were drawn into and made a part
of the shared energy in their performance...”
