Gideon Freudmann and Mark Herschler have recently joined together forming a duo called BROQUE where they combine their musical talents on cello and guitar respectively. For Freudmann and Herschler, the repertoire of Johannes Sebastian Bach is fair game for the field of musical experimentation, melding Bach’s compositions with decidedly risky improvisations. They stretch and reinterpret Classical styles, altering the form and using it as inspiration for new original pieces. BROQUE’s original compositions are at once somber and spellbinding; with Herschler’s detailed guitar work providing an aural ladder while Freudmann climbs each step with cool precision. Their debut CD, entitled Dancing On My Hat, highlights these stunning juxtapositions. Both experienced improvisors in the own right, they perform a mixture of Bach’s Inventions, Blues-inspired musical dialogs and their own magical improvisations.They bring to their work influences including Classical, Blues, Jazz, British Pop and Flamenco.
