Sirius Variations


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 Rückert 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.
