About

Adrian Tully presents himself to his audience on his own, and what the Australian saxophonist does with this venture is impressive: he adapted solo works from across the centuries for his instrument. The result is a colourful and surprisingly varied album that could not have been more personal and surprises with its depth of expression.

The saxophone was not invented until the middle of the 19th century. For the older music, Tully therefore quite inevitably hadto fall back on repertoire for other instruments. Whether Boismoitier, Stamitz or Quantz, the versatility that Tully displays with his instrument here quickly makes one forget the original sound of oboe, flute or violin.

In addition, there is an unparalleled art of phrasing that reveals a deep understanding of older music. The change from soprano to alto saxophone does the rest to let the works of Vieuxtemps and Reger shine in the most beautiful light.

The pieces by Kazuo Fukushima, Kalevi Aho and Thierry Escaich round off a programme that is hard to beat for esprit. The recording technique, finely tuned to the historic concert hall, does the rest to create an all-round fascinating sound experience in the literal sense of the word.
