About

PianoBasso's signature, their own low-key and stripped-down arrangements of classical pieces, has brought them international success with many listeners all over the world.

Now they follow up with the album Tranquillo III. It includes pieces by Satie, Bach, Debussy and Chopin among others.

PianoBasso is a duo that consists of pianist and arranger Thomas Gustavsson and double bassist Andreas Gustafson. Their goal has from the very beginning been to perform classical music in their personal way, which has meant that they do not always follow the usual norms for this genre.

I have always liked playing music from the classical piano repertoire, but there has also been a lot of other music that I have wanted to play, but there were no arrangements for the piano. On one occasion I was commissioned to play Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem at a memorial service. The only piano arrangement I found was written by piano equilibrist Franz List, and I thought it felt too bombastic for the occasion. So instead, I made my own arrangement where I focused on cherishing the melody and letting the harmonics get the sorrowful purity that the piece needed. This became the very first seed for PianoBasso. Thomas Gustavsson
