The cozy micro-theater at the Chelsea museum is a perfect fit for the relatively private and generally poetic exchanges of the pianist and viola player. Their new Transylvania Concert is one of those records that whisks you away—long tone reveries, pulsing pirouettes, contoured introspection, gypsy joy. The stark situation allows for full disclosure texturally, and Maneri’s fluid lines sometimes sound like a horn. Could be transcendent.
