Bands - Duo

Bart Quartier – Bart Van Caenegem

Vibraphone – Piano




With the "Lyric Suite for Sextet" of Chick Corea on the 'Percussion Festival Brussels 2006', Bart and Bart decided to continue as a duo.

The vibraphone and the piano melt very well together through their melodic, harmonic and percussive elements.

This resulted in the CD 'Profiles' 24 Essays for Vibraphone and Piano (W.E.R.F. Records 099)
