Happy Release Day: Henning Sieverts – Bassolo

 

Henning Sieverts – double bass

Listen:    https://glmmusic.de/Bassolo

“Henning Sieverts is a brilliant bassist who has the stylistic means of new music as well as those of jazz at his disposal.” (FAZ)

All alone, but together with his double bass – that is the new solo program of the Munich star bassist Henning Sieverts. Sometimes it is extremely delicate, sometimes grippingly groovy – plucked, bowed, stroked and tapped – everything seems possible in this “one bass show”. The album “Henning Sieverts: Bassolo” was recorded in the fantastic acoustics of Munich’s Auferstehungskirche.

All pieces of the recording are collected in a music booklet “Henning Sieverts: Bassolo”, in two versions each: plucked and bowed, with and without improvised parts.

Henning Sieverts is in demand worldwide as a bassist, cellist and composer. His discography includes over 150 CDs. Concerts and tours have taken Sieverts to all five continents. He has received numerous awards, such as the “Echo Jazz”, the New German Jazz Award (even 2x!), the first prize at the Jazz Competition of the “International Society of Bassists” and the State Promotion Prize of the Free State of Bavaria.

Henning Sieverts regularly gives composition and instrumental workshops in bass and cello, among others at the music academies of Zurich, Lucerne, Bern and Nuremberg. He is a lecturer in jazz bass at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich.

Sieverts also works as a jazz presenter for Bayerischer Rundfunk.

“Izabella’s latest project combines the sound of vibraphone and harp with very special, unusual instruments such as glass harp, sundrum, array mbira, marimba, steel drum, crotales
or Waterphone, which rarely appear in jazz and improvised music. This creates completely new worlds of sound. Inspired by impressionism. The listener gets a chance to experience a new, different sound experience. The album features the extraordinary Polish – Japanese singer Yumi Ito from Basel (CH).

Happy Release Day: MARE from Quadro Nuevo

HAPPY RELEASE DAY: MARE from Quadro Nuevo

To the music: https://glm.lnk.to/mare

Especially in times of lockdown it is important to dream. In the near future there will be few opportunities to listen to and watch music live. It has never been more important to bring dreams and visions home.

The Mediterranean lightness of being – Music from the sea – the sea full of dreams

Put on your sunglasses, listen to this music – and the trivial worries of everyday life are lost as blurred memories of a long gone yesterday in the distance.

MARE is the noise of waves that has become music.
MARE is a southern sea breeze that has always captured the imagination of Central Europeans.
MARE shines in all the beguiling sounds of a longed-for paradise and smells of dolce vita, ripe lemons and yellow bikinis.

Cinema Paradiso – Quadro Nuevo

On 6th of July Ennio Morricone died in Rome. The musicians of Quadro Nuevo consider him one of the greatest composers of our time. Shortly before his death they recorded one of his pieces:

Cinema Paradiso.

Ennio Morricone composed it together with his son Andrea as a sensitive musical theme on the film Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (1988) by the director and scriptwriter Giuseppe Tornatore

The film takes place over long distances in a small town in Sicily and sketches in a nostalgic and penetrating way the story of the local cinema, the enthusiastic projectionist Alfredo, who loses his eyesight in a fire, and his little helper, the Half-Wise Toto, who is shaped by his world and later becomes a director himself.

Cinema Paradiso will be released in October 2020 on the new Quadro Nuevo album MARE.
