Over/Under is the debut album for Luke Severn and Evan Fein as a cello-piano duo and represents the culmination of five years of artistic collaboration.
The creative partnership between Melbourne-based Luke and New York-based Evan began as a correspondence about the contemporary music scenes in their respective countries and developed, via careful time-zone navigation, into a rich exchange of ideas between two artists, now close friends, who understand deeply what it means to dwell on both the compositional and interpretive sides of a musical equation.
Refined over three tours of North America and Australia, the works on this album include their emotive perspective on Brahms’s evergreen Sonata No.1 in E minor, Op. 38 and Fein’s buoyant Cello Sonata No. 2, Op. 28, composed expressly for the two of them in 2020 and premiered in 2022.
Johannes Brahms (1833–1897) was a German composer and pianist, and one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period. In his lifetime, Brahms' popularity and influence were considerable; he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the Three Bs.
