5/4/2019 Bryce Dessner's El Chan Released

Katia and Marielle Labeque present their new album dedicated entirely to American composer Bryce Dessner, founder and guitarist of the rock band The National. El Chan features debut recordings of three works: 'Concerto For Two Pianos' performed by the Labèque Sisters, Orchestre de Paris and Matthias Pintscher, 'El Chan' for two pianos dedicated to film director Alejandro Iñárritu (The Revenant, Babel, Amores Perros etc.) and 'Haven', for two pianos and two guitars and which will be premiered live in concert during the Minimalist Dream House tour in April 2019.

Arranged for two pianos and performed regularly internationally by Katia and Marielle Labèque, El Chan is dedicated to Dessner’s friend and collaborator, film director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu and his wife Maria Eladia Hagerman. The work is inspired by the mythical guardian spirit, ‘El Chan,’ of a pool of water nestled in the canyons close to Iñarritu and Hagerman’s hometown of San Miguel de Allende, in the stunning Mexican landscape, and which has been the source of popular legends for many centuries. Iñárritu in turn created the cover artwork for this new album.
