Ann Geerts

The friendship between the two performers, who make up MazikDuo, existed prior to the duo's creation. Tolo Genestar (clarinet) and Marc Susmi (piano), both born in 1991 graduated the Conservatorio Superior del Liceo de Barcelona in 2013, where Mark was garlanded with first prize at the end of his degree. Their respective teachers were Isaac Rodríguez and Miquel Ferrer.

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 Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (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 Concours International de Cuivres Anciens (Toulouse, 2016) together with the Dichos Diabolos ensemble.

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. 

Jewish Life is a fusion of the ´classical' and the ‘actual’. It unites the tradition of classical music with the sounds of world music.
 

JEWISH LIFE, PORTRAITS OF THE PAST is the name which Tolo Genestar and Marc Sumsi have given to their most recent project edited in 2017 on the label Temps Record (Barcelona). At the peak of their musical careers, they have come together in order to present to the public this new program rooted deep in the heart of Jewish culture.
