ENGLISH: 

Hello! Welcome to Sirocco Quartet's Kickstarter campaign.

We are excited to be getting closer to the release of our second album. We have created an original programme of modern works by living composers, none of which have been released before, and we can't wait to bring this exciting contemporary music to life and share our new project with you.

In order to reach as wide an audience as possible with our music, we aim to release our CD through the label Encora. For this to happen we need your support.

As a quartet we love to perform a wide range of music from ancient baroque transcriptions to brand new commissions. Our debut album La Danza (2014) is a collection of lively dances from different styles and temperaments. To compliment this album we decided to develop a programme of purely modern music. We have chosen five pieces by excellent living composers, two of which were commissioned by Sirocco Quartet. We are committed to the promotion of new music for our instrument and these talented composers greatly enrich the saxophone's somewhat limited repertoire.

Through the vast array of colours, textures, sounds, harmonies and noises explored in these works, the saxophone comes alive and is truly in its element.

Our CD programme features works by: 

  • Thilo Schaller (Germany. Work commissioned by SSQ) 
  • Malte Giesen (Germany) 
  • Charlotte Bray (UK. Work commissioned by SSQ) 
  • Robert Myers (USA) 
  • Roderik de Man (Netherlands)

DEUTSCH:

Hallo und willkommen bei Siroccos Kickstarter Projekt! 

Die Veröffentlichung unseres neuen Albums rückt immer näher. Wir haben ein spannendes Programm zusammengestellt mit Stücken von lebenden Komponisten, die noch nie aufgenommen wurden. Wir können es kaum erwarten euch diese fantastische, originelle Musik zu präsentieren und unser Album "Catch" zu veröffentlichen.

Um ein möglichst großes Publikum mit unserer Musik zu erreichen, planen wir das Album mit dem CD-Verlag Encora zu veröffentlichen. Hierfür brauchen wir eure Hilfe. 

Als Quartett lieben wir es, ein breitgefächertes Programm zu spielen, von Barockbearbeitungen bis hin zu brandneuen Kompositionen. Unser Album "La Danza" (2014) beinhaltet eine Sammlung von Tänzen aus ver- schiedenen Musikstilen und Stimmungen. Als Kontrast zu "La Danza" wollten wir für die neue CD ein rein zeitgenössisches Programm erstellen. Wir haben fünf Stücke von herausragenden lebenden Komponisten ausgesucht, von denen zwei für unser Quartett geschrieben wurden. Die neuen Komponisten bereichern das begrenzte Repertoire für Saxophonisten sehr. Wir möchten, dass jeder diese inspirierende, fantastische Musik hören kann. 

Die Kompositionen erwecken das umfangreiche Farben-, Klangs-, Harmonie-, und Geräuschspektrum des Saxophons zu neuem Leben.
