We have just recorded Jewish Life, portraits of the past, a unique project between the fusion of classical music and klezmer.
This CD includes a variety of linked to a common theme that of Jewish contemporary history. For this reason, the works presented on this recording were germinated in very distinct contexts and moments. From the gloomiest sonority of World War II to the most frenetic melodies of his most popular festive genre.
Why the Klezmer?
According to Prokofiev and very present in the interpretation of this work, the klezmer is a song that laughs and cries at the same time.
After centuries of history and very persecuted in times of war, this musical genre and its expressivity are going to shake you.

Jewish Life is the culmination of an intense work of study and dedication, another goal in the career of this young musicians and a way of explaining history, but without words. Take a look at our MAKING OF!

Who we are and why we do it?
The friendship between the two performers, who make up Mazik Duo, existed prior to the duo's creation. Tolo Genestar (clarinet) and Marc Susmi (piano), both born in 1991 graduated the Conservatory Superior del Liceo de Barcelona.
With the aim of polishing their musical prowess, Tolo continued his studies at the National Conservatory in Nice (France) by taking masters in Classical Music Performance; Marc went on to specialize as a harpsichord player in the ESMUC.
They have both gone on to win many prizes as soloists, Tolo was presented with first place in the Arjau 2015 clarinet prize and a place in the final at the International Birkfeld competition in 2015 in Austria, however, his greatest achievement came in 2016 when he was awarded the Special UNESCO prize in Barcelona. As a result of this, he went on to tour Mozart's K622. Meanwhile, Marc was also presented with the first prize in both Vilafranca and in the Early Music competition in Tolouse (2016).
Jewish Life came into being just after this period studded with personal successes. It is the point at which maturity, stylistic prowess, and ambition have all merged to open up new horizons.
When we get together to make music in this context we do it for
passion. For the pleasure of giving life to history.
