About

Once again the musicians of the Swiss Artist Consort embark on a musical expedition: with this album, phenomenal clarinetist François Benda is releasing what is already his sixth Genuin CD. All the pieces are “kind of jazz” – and “kind of” is a fitting description. They inhabit the exciting threshold between so-called serious music and jazz, from the pivotal figure of Gershwin to contemporary composer Daniel Schnyder, whose has been dancing zestfully among all the genres since the 80s. The programme selection and stunningly beautiful playing by Sebastian Benda (piano) and his son François make us sit up and listen, and the works by Joseph Horovitz and Leonard Bernstein are true discoveries.
