Swiss pianist Sylvie Courvoisier

From 5049 Records.

Sylvie Courvoisier is a pianist and improviser of stunning virtuosity and precision. Her playing is marked by tremendous technique and an advanced sense of harmony. She has worked closely with Ikue Mori, John Zorn, Mark Feldman, Susie Ibarra and many others. Two weeks ago I traveled to her home in Brooklyn to trace her history from being the daughter of a weekend jazzer in Switzerland to being one of New York’s fiercest musicians.
