Nicola Sergio and Michael Rosen play for the first time together in 2007. Between the two musicians an artistic feeling is born, feeling which will be the root of a three-year cooperation on the occasion of different concerts in Italy and in France and of the two discs Nicola Sergio trio Symbols (Challenge Records International) and Cilea mon amour (Nau Records).The Italian pianist and the American saxophonist meet up again in a duo, which is certainly a more demanding formula from a musical point of view, but at the same time more intimate and more flexible than a trio or a quartet. The repertoire consists of original pieces by the two musicians, reviews of standards and hints to Cuban and Brazilian music. The whole is integrated by an energy, a spirit of adventure and an emotional impact which benefits from the strength their friendship developed in the years. Another key feature of this duo is the melodic aspect, a common gift that characterizes the two musicians both in writing and in the improvisations and that makes the project usable and suitable for any kind of audience.
