SPALTKLANG - EN SUITE
Markus Stauss' Spaltklang project found its origin in 2001. "En Suite" is the fourth Spaltklang album.
The music that is performed by Spaltklang is exceptional for two reasons. The first one is
the beautful combination of the instruments. The violin, saxophone and bass sound great together. In the comprehensive liner notes, Michel Delville explains the Spaltklang principle as 'a Renaissance term describing an ensemble featuring instruments from different families.'
The second reason is the presence of complex, yet lyrical compositions. This is contemporary chamber-rock at its best. In his pieces, Markus Stauss combines polyrhythms with medieval music.
"En Suite" is a remarkable album. As the title suggests, it will take your music journey one step further.
If you're into contemporary music, you should definitely check this out.
