The composer and master reedman (sax, bass clarinet, shakuhachi) in duos with two unique and highly individual pianists, Denman Maroney and Jon Backer. Known for both his solo and ensemble work, Rothenberg ranges from expansive and aggressive to meditative and ethereal. Sometimes in the same breath. The two pianists share a passion for diving (literally) into the insides of the piano, a sound source that continues to fascinate and surprise.
