Review Alban Gerhardt & Alliage Quintett – Phantasy in Blue

Review Alban Gerhardt & Alliage Quintett – Phantasy in Blue

Cellist Alban Gerhardt and Eliage Quintet play very sexy arrangements with virtuosity and a high degree of expressiveness.

Really unusual shot. For example, where can you find Vivaldi’s concerto next to Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” where there are Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations next to Manuel de Falla’s “Canciones populares”? Answer: with Alban Gerhardt, who, and this is the next unusual component, has recorded these works in concert with the Alliage Quintet, a total of four saxophones, a piano and a cello. As unusual as it is at all, the recording is very interesting. Gerhardt plays with a high level of expression, and the tonal fusion of the various instruments works surprisingly well. This is how you listen to new challenges that you accept with pleasure. The playing is very cool in places, but not in the sense of art per se, but to make the music sound as alive as possible.
