All about Fugues Aus den Fugen geraten

Deutsches Saxophon Ensemble


DSE: All about Fugues

Hindemith, Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Strauss, Beethoven

Chromart Classics

The programme of this recording is the result of the extraordinary and consistently pursued quartet philosophy of the Deutsche Saxophon Ensemble.
Originating in their profound conviction that the saxophone in the formation with soprano, alto, tenor and baritone, now at the beginning of the 21st century at the latest, is the preferred choice for lending a new transparency to polyphonic structures, Nicole Schillings, Monika Leufgen, Katharina Stashik and Michael Ruf open up musical worlds previously unknown to the instrument.
Making exclusive use of their own adaptations of contrapuntal masterworks, they are, for the first time, reworking nearly the entire German musical tradition with the youngest of all musical instruments.
And that’s a good thing, for the result is amazing – one wishes that this instrument had already been invented in Bach’s day.
...very interesting and new sound impressions of polyphonic masterpieces!
