Jazzy Woodwinds

商品番号 OS-29 メーカー Gregor Witt
Imagine five (still) crazy musicians who have played together for fifteen years and who have mastered the orchestra literature from Mozart to Brahms to Schönberg to Boulez and back. Suddenly they get the itch for something different, 10 for an infusion of something new and untried. Where is the “new music” one might like to hear? Can there be anything new without crossing the borders of genres? What if one tried to match things that seemingly don't fit? What about just having fun and going crazy? What if one were to expand the “groove” of Bach or Mozart and ended up in jazz idioms? More questions than answers! After a concert of jazzy music for wind quintet and jazz trio in April of 2009, the opinion of colleagues and and the audience was unanimous: Boys, we want more of this!

To be sure, the spark also ignited composer Benjamin Köthe, who has given us artistic advice and a new piece of music. Composer Frank Raschke fulfilled our wish for something novel last minute. Thank you! Last but not least, universal genius Augustin Lehfuss, who discovered a Wind Quintet with jazz phrasing on our webpage sent us music without any request, which seemed initially very difficult… This recording is a first manifestation of our curiosity and search. The variety of pieces shows this fact. Among them are some Evergreens which are of course not new but show a different side because of the instrumentation. Specially arranged for this recording, they are “enhanced” with percussion and double bass. There are new compositions which allow the joy of playing with the true and tried in an experimental setting.
