Already the third GENUIN release by the phenomenal sonic.art saxophone quartet (a prizewinner at Germany’s National Music Competition), this recording features an all-Russian program. But we’d be hard-pressed to find a more diverse collection of pieces, ranging from Glazunov’s Saxophone Quartet, probably the genre’s most important work, to Elena Firsova’s ethereal sonorities and dramatic, strident music by Sofia Gubaidulina and Dmitri Shostakovich. As always, sonic.art plays at a staggering level, and their musical partners Christian Lindberg (sensational trombonist and 2016 Classical Music Award winner) and Evelina Dobračeva (sublime soprano) add even more passion to the performances.

sonic.art is:
Ruth Velten - soprano
Alexander Doroshkevich - alto
Adrian Tully - tenor
Annegret Schmiedl - baritone

"Makellos im Ansatz und Spiel, versteht sich das Saxophon-Quartett sonic.art auf zeitgenössische Musik voller Situationskomik." Read the complete review by Christiane Franke from 08. August 2020 here on klassik.com.
