HUGO READ & THOMAS R CKERT - SIRIUS VARIATIONS
Cat. no: KR10144
Release Date: 16th October 2020
When two important musicians devote themselves to their own compositions, their own sound and personal style naturally play a decisive role. Here Hugo Read shows the different facets of his instrument - the alto saxophone - and builds up a very close intimacy.
This masterly recording skilfully captures his sound with its wide-ranging dynamics. The exhilarating expressiveness is a creative contrast to his work. Thomas R ckert accentuates and articulates this on the piano and accomplishes the artwork of following the saxophone at the same time and seemingly leading it through the music.
The result is a musical album that springs from a dense communication, bringing together two essential spheres of modern avant-garde music: The individual style of the musician in modern jazz, which culminates in his improvisational skills, and the composition as a work in itself, which is ideally decoupled from the performing musician.
