EP "SAX & GOSPEL"
FRIDAY 10th MARCH 2017 !
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 !
