 Greek 7th string guitarist Giorgos Tabakis and German clarinetist Rebecca Trescher joined their musical passion and jumped into the big sea of European jazz to fusion together and give birth to “Dual Nature”-Live Sessions-.



Dual Nature, Silver Medal Winner by the Global Music Awards in 2020, is a seven track CD album recorded as Live Sessions in April 2019, Mixed & Masterd by Giotis Paraskevaidis, and produced by Giorgos Tabakis. All songs written and composed by Giorgos Tabakis except “Moon Elegy” by Rebecca Trescher.

Dual Nature begins with a captivating harmonious piece as those composed for Contemporary Modern Ballet of the highest level. The track leads the listener to a theater stage where the unexpected awaits!

The chemistry these two amazing musicians and their instruments share is astonishing. Playing as a Duo is not something everyone can do especially in a music style where there’s no guitar distortion but melodies coming from pure musical notes combined with a number of musical ingredients such as Greek folk elements, contemporary classical music and the biggest one European jazz style.  


The musical expressiveness reached on “Dual Nature”, “Aetolia”, “Interface”, “Moon Elegy” is beyond words as the rhythm and harmony swim in your ears, the performing melodies of a multicultural musical process do the rest with a guitar brilliantly played by Giorgos Tabakis who keeps the listener tuned in while the clarinet played by Rebecca Tresher follows the dialogue of innovative musical expressions leading to dark notes but maintaining the pleasant-sounding in balance.

Rebecca Trescher was born in 1986 in Tubingen. She is a German based professional clarinetist, composer and bandleader. She has a Master of Music degree in Jazz clarinet and composition.
