We had a wonderful conversation with the sensational Piano/Saxophone duo, Liana Pailodze Harron and Thomas A. Giles, for this season’s 7th episode.

Clara met the duo in the fall of 2021, and she introduced Yukimi to the video clip of their performance (  — we’ve been obsessed with Liana and Thomas! So, we felt so lucky to be able to invite them for an interview…and we had a blast!

This Brooklynite piano/sax duo never came across one another, though they have been residing only one subway station away for years till the fateful day of Sept 2021. Liana and Thomas finally met through their mutual friend. A year later, they produced an album, Mysteries of the Macabre, with music by prolific composers such as Gyögy Ligeti, Olivier Messiaen, and more!

In this special episode, the duo will share:

  • ✅ About their fun collaboration, Album “Mysteries of the Macabre”
  • ✅ Their solo careers
  • ✅ Impact of the pandemic

and more!
