To celebrate 15 years of career, the Quatuor Ellipsos wished to pay tribute in the harmony orchestras which gather so many amateur musicians all around the world.

 

Brilliant brass instruments, swing of the jazz, the South African rhythms and the sounds come from Asia, without forgetting a point(headland) of tango and fiddle Irish …

 

"United Colors", it is the melting pot of the sax culture.

A 5th album placed under the sign of the pleasure of the game and sharing, involving new creations for quartet of saxophones and partitions with harmony orchestra, in the side of Nantes Philharmonie.

 EP "SAX & GOSPEL"

 

The Ellipsos Quartet offers here a meeting between the saxophone, which is reminiscent of the timbre of the organ, and the vocal quartet thus illustrating the art of fugue par excellence, through the repertoire of sacred music, gospel music or works for organ that characterize so well Churches Music.
 
Recognized for their quality arrangements, innovative and unique, the Ellipsos have fun playing music Yesterday and Today.

In this third opus, BOLERO, somewhere between the piano and the orchestra, this real " symphonic quartet " revisit pieces of the big French directory with boldness and sincerity.

By putting the theme of the dance at the heart of this recording,

these four saxophonists also appropriate

original works of Thierry ESCAICH, Gabriel PIERNÉ or still Jean FRANÇAIX with an interpretation(performance)

of any sharpness(delicacy) and virtuosity.

Their incredible and eclectic tones present the instrument invented by Adolphe SAX like a "chameleon" where,

in particular in the Bolero,

He can easily become confused with a small clarinet,

Be transformed into a cor anglais, embody a perched high bassoon

Or still metamorphose into the whole symphony orchestra!

 

Introduced by Thierry Escaich

Recorded in 2009, Peer Gynt invites the listener to rediscover known composers as Grieg, difficult at first sight for some as Prokovieff or Bela Bartok and others were forgotten as

Glazounov or Vittorio MONTI (resumed nevertheless in one of Lady GAGA's most famous songs!), in a rich musical universe, printed by colors from the east of Europe.

An european recital, in the positive and moving energies

for all the public !
