Happy Release Day: Quadro Nuevo – December

music & spirit for the cold season

The new album of the world music ensemble Quadro Nuevo is dedicated to the wintry mood. The musicians, who have already released three Christmas albums in their long band history since 1996, do not see December as another work of this genre, but nevertheless they interpret melodies of religious or spiritual origin on it.

They opine:
“Figures like Jesus, Mary and Joseph were formative for our occidental mindset. Regardless of whether one is a believer, whether one understands them as historical persons or as myths, their story can give us orientation.
In the course of life, we can move away from them, lose track of them, reinterpret them again and again, and approach them again. Especially in the darkest time of the year, we reflect particularly intensely.

Happy Release Day: ODYSSEE – Quadro Nuevo

ODYSSEE – a journey into the light

Quadro Nuevo sails through the myth-ridden world of the Aeolian Islands in a large ensemble of artists.

In the encounter with Odysseus, Jason, Penelope, Athena, Sirens and other godlike figures,  music full of rhythmic power and archaic timbres unfolds.

An album that is definitely different from all previous ones by Quadro Nuevo.

You’ll find hymnal improvisations alongside a driven ska groove, a sea bossa nova in early-season 5/4 time as well as a heartfelt lullaby for the fallen Icarus or an earthy ballad for the waiting Penelope.

There were inspirations.
Odysseus’ swashbuckling journey back to the old homeland.
Aeneas’ search for a new home.
Icarus’ flight and flight to freedom.
Jason and his Argonaut companions hunting for the Golden Fleece as a symbol of power, wealth, luck, or even wisdom.

The great journeys, interwoven a thousand times with the gods and myths of antiquity, became central epics of Western culture.

What relevance do they have in our modern society?
Do their settings offer more than sunny bathing, Mediterranean food and a few temple remains?
Can we even derive references to current issues such as migration, climate change or the littering of the oceans?

An adventurous collective around the band Quadro Nuevo traced these questions.
The answers should be neither scientific nor political. But artistic.

Happy Release Day: Stay away and play – Andreas Hinterseher

Andreas Hinterseher has been on tour for over twenty years.

On tour with the tireless world music band Quadro Nuevo. From the small jazz club to the big concert halls, from the intimate quartet concert with the three friends to the big gig with full orchestra.

Until March 2020.

Suddenly: quarantine, performance ban, lockdown – silence ….

… and from the silence sounds music.

The studio in Fischbachau (Germany), which until then had been used mainly for quickly practicing a new program or composing pieces, was suddenly the sole center of creative work.

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.
