Hindemith: Works for Saxophones

Wergo - WER 73532
clair-obscur Saxophonquartett
The saxophone has a rich timbre and a wide range of expressive possibilities, but despite its highly attractive features, the instrument was a late addition to the classical orchestra. Seen in this light, the work by the saxophone quartet clair-obscur which devotes itself intensively to classical works for saxophone takes on a particular significance. The ensemble’s repertoire is seemingly inexhaustible. From adventurous arrangements of piano music to string quartets, there is nothing the musicians leave untried. They employ their instruments to bring to life a myriad of different tonal colours and musical genres. Paul Hindemith is the focus of this CD: during the 1920s, he became enchanted by the tone of the saxophone, integrating it on a number of occasions into the scores of his stage works. The ensemble clair-obscur has a special interest in his chamber music, for example the Sonata for four horns and the composition Frankenstein’s Monstre Repertorie for string quartet. These works alongside the other compositions featured on this CD have been specially arranged for this saxophone ensemble production by Christoph Enzel.
