Percussionist Niggli's group Zoom meets Arte Quartett for a set of Niggli compositions.

Niggli, Lucas Zoom / Arte Quartet
Crash Cruise

Niggli, Lucas Zoom / Arte Quartet: Crash Cruise (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    

"Lucas Niggli is known for his ability to pair compositions, improvisations and different styles with his own musical ideas - and so creating complex and multifaceted music, but always keeping within his own recognisable style. The repertoire of ARTE Quartett, a formation which was founded in 1995, reaches from Arvo Pärt, Phil Glass and Steve Reich to Fred Frith and Pierre Favre. The quartet consists of four classically trained saxophone players: Beat Hofstetter, Sascha Armbruster, Andrea Formenti and Beat Kappeler. Their commitment lies with 'Neue Musik' and boundary-breaking stylistic cooperations and they mainly perform compositions, which were specially designed and arranged for Arte Quartett. And now they are working with Lucas Niggli and his trio. "The sound of it moves me," writes Tim Berne in the Liner notes of the CD Crash Cruise."-Intakt
