Info for Impressions #1
In a run-up to our fifth anniversary, TwoPianists Records is proud to present Impressions #1, a compilation of beautiful tracks. Rather than falling in the crude category of ‘mood music’, this album is a tribute to the many great artists we have recorded and their special brand of outstanding musicianship. Impressions 1 highlights not only our favorite artists - such as Konstantin Scherbakov, Michelle Breedt, Daniel Rowland and the Rhenische Philharmonie - but also gorgeous music.
Each track was featured on our award-winning discs and represents the integrity and depth of feeling of our artists. Here you find a track from a Bach Cello Suite alongside Piazzola’s Four Seasons, Schubert next to Gluck’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits, and Rachmaninoff alongside Harrison.

Daniel Rowland, violin
Michelle Breedt, mezzo-soprano
Nina Schumann, piano
Luis Magalhaes, piano

A compilation dedicated to funk and pre – zouk period, which has never been documented before. It is compilated by specialists of the genre: Julien Achard (Digger's Digest) and Nicolas SKLIRIS (ex-Superfly Records).
After the success of Kouté Jazz, Heavenly Sweetness comes back with a dancefloor but not jazz compilation, enough to move your feet at through the whole summer ! 13 disco, boogie and Zouk tracks recorded in the 80’s in the West Indies.
The advantage of this selection is precisely that it reveals a broader spectrum than the zouk music style that are badly defined. Most of the tracks, were not much broadcasted even if interpreted by some big names in Caribbean music (Pierre-Edouard Decimus / Patrick St. Eloi / Eddy La Viny). They were too fast classified as Zouk. These Tracks reveal this will of singularity, this merger between traditional and other rhythms genres (funk, disco, afro-beat, Latin Brazilian ...), with the addition of new instruments such as synthesizers and drums machine in the creative process.
In many zouk’s albums, this period often included one or even several, tracks that were qualified as "proto-zouk" and "funky-zouk" or the "boogie-zouk" to emphasize the fusion of genres . But these tracks have remained unknown to the general public because only the "hits" were played on the radio, dance floors (the famous "tan" or “zouk”), clubs and bus.
This album contains no booklet.
