"Dutch reed and Chinese strings"

The CD Runaway Horses, by Filip Davidse and Kimho Ip, proves how enchantingly beautiful the combination of a soprano saxophone and yangchin, the Chinese dulcimer, can be. (…)The music is enchanting because on the one hand it does so much justice the rich and versatile Chinese musical tradition and on the other hand it has enough distance from that tradition to give it an individual and modern spin.
It's precisely this that makes "Runaway Horses" very accessible for the 'Western' oriented ears.(…) The harmonisations of the sublimely played instruments create a tension, an emotion, that would be absent in a purely conventional interpretation. (…) This unique project certainly deserves a follow up.

"Runaway Horses"

This is definitely a CD to have in your collection and it may be a “one of a kind.” The duo of Davidse and Ip will certainly open new and exciting windows in your listening imagination. They are definitely two artists who have met on that different road, and have come up with some truly wonderful music as a result of that encounter.
