Rodrigues / Dorner / Torres / Fragenheim

Rodrigues / Dorner / Torres / Fragenheim: Nor (Creative Sources)

Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

A mature work from quartet of Ernesto Rodrigues, Axel Dorner, Nuno Torres and Alexander Frangenheim, using their instruments in unexpected ways to create a slowly breathing work in three movements. The orchestration of strings, horns, reeds, and brass allow a rich set of tones and sonic environment to emerge, fueled by extended techniques that create other-worldly sound. Through intent listening each player allows his partners room for distinction with complementary timbre and tone, motion, ebb and flow. It's a beautiful creation, fragile yet with a solidity born from the confidence of each player and their wildly imaginative approach to their instrument. An album to set the lights low, letting this album's seductive and mysterious sound bloom.
