Today on Ecléctico you're listening to a composition and arrangement by pianist Hania Rani and cellist Dobrawa Czocher, two musicians and long-time friends from Poland. "Repetitive rhythms in the piano and cello, pulsation, energy and dynamics were our tools for creating this piece," write the musicians about this work on their website. Watching the You Tube video is highly recommended.

You'll go deeper with an excerpt from and a link to a review by Richard Allen on A Closer Listen.


"Con Moto" by Hania Rani & Dobrawa Czocher
2021 | Piano and cello duo and composers from Poland


Go deeper.
[Pianist and composer] Hania Rani teams with renowned cellist and childhood friend Dobrawa Szocher for the exquisite Inner Symphonies. The album was conceived during the pandemic as the composers considered how they might encourage each other and offer hope through their music. The saying of Hania’s grandmother ~ “Spring will come, that’s for sure” ~ is reflected in the title of the final track and the album’s upbeat mood. The tone travels from restrained and contemplative to exuberant and unleashed, as demonstrated in the contrast between the overture and “Con Moto” ~ joy crouched behind a couch, followed by the leap.
