About

Eva van Grinsven's Saxofolk debut album with the Berlage Saxophone Quartet was a spectacular success. On Rendez-vous Russe her saxophone and its marvellously versatile tone blend with the instruments of her chamber music partners, and the fine articulation so incredibly similar to the human voice produces a unique impact.

Two saxophones join forces for a contemporary encore. The reminiscences of Russian Orthodox sacred song create a striking effect in Sofia Gubaidulina's Duo Sonata. The fact that Lars Niederstraßer, another Berlage instrumentalist, is involved produces an especially harmonious combination of these two instruments and perfectly renders the sacred illusion on this finely balanced, three-dimensional Super Audio CD.
