Balancing the extroverted sound of the piano with the guitar’s innate intimacy is a challenge—so much so that these two instruments are rarely heard as a duo. But pianist Aleksander Debicz and guitarist Łukasz Kuropaczewski are kindred musical spirits who work in sublime equilibrium. On Debicz’s “Recipe” and “Pedro,” their interplay and musical awareness are nothing short of breathtaking—both players soloist one moment, accompanist the next. Inspired arrangements make for thrilling cultural crossovers: “Aranjuez Concerto BWV 1056” is an ingenious meeting of Bach and Rodrigo, and “Domingo” places Italian composer Scarlatti at the heart of Spanish flamenco. Also not to be missed is a magical wander through the music of Ravel. Debicz’s shimmering “Quarantine Song,” featuring wordless vocals by star countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński, is a moment of quiet brilliance.
