Straddling the fine line between so-called classical music and jazz is an award-winning duo on their new GENUIN CD. Violinist Matthias Well and pianist Lilian Akopova present syncopated, blue note-soaked sounds by Astor Piazzolla, Maurice Ravel, and George Gershwin, as well as two spectacular pieces of recent date: Alexander Rosenblatt's virtuosic Carmen Fantasy and Vladislav Cojocaru's at first melancholy, later groovy Kaleidoscope. Dedicated to Akopova and Well, it is recorded here for the first time. A CD full of creativity and color, perfect for fighting the autumn blues!

NDR Kultur
On November 2, Matthias Well and Lilian Akopova were guests on NDR Kultur à la carte EXTRA from 7 to 8 p.m. and presented Jazzissimo in a live studio concert.

Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung
"Rousing: it's certainly one of the most entertaining and vital chamber music albums of the season that German violinist Matthias Well and the Ukrainian pianist have put together under the title Jazzissimo."
