Duo Ultima – Guido Bäumer and Aladár Rácz

Release concert - Dances and Delights

Guido Bäumer (saxophone) and Aladár Rácz (piano) perform music from their newly released album Dances and Delights. 

Guido Bäumer and Aladár Rácz first met whilst living and working in North Iceland in 2001. They formed Duo Ultima, and have been collaborating on an array of programmes together ever since, performing together at numerous festivals and in major concert halls. Their repertoire seeks to examine the saxophone from different angles, with programmes focusing on French music, Impressionism, the saxophone as virtuoso instrument, and, more recently, expanding into a quartet (with accordion and double bass) to explore the music of Piazzolla.
