Songs for Solo Instrument and Piano
On their new released CD "Memories" Matthias Anton (Saxophone) and Philipp Moehrke (Piano) present their technically brilliant converging compositions – a retrospection and personal tribute to their musical friendship, down to the present day lasting for more than 10 years. Classic and jazz lovers will find joy in this timeless inspiration.
Both musicians found a symbiosis of Pop, Classic and Jazz and provide concise, atmospherical themes embedded in acoustic high-class arrangements. Like a dialogue these two musicians pass on their parts to each other, seize the given "arguments" and meet within a process of flowing development. […]
The author, Philipp Moehrke, received his degree in jazz piano and arrangement from the Berklee College of Music and has since worked as a pianist, composer, arranger and producer for different styles of music as well as for film, theatre and music productions. Together with the saxophonist Matthias Anton, Moehrke has published revised transcriptions of their CD ‘Memories’.
The eleven selected pieces are suited for classical as well as jazz lovers, as the authors have created a symbiosis of pop, classical and jazz music in their high class arrangements for chamber groups.
The classical chord sequences build a stable, harmonic framework, upon which the improvisation of both saxophonists develops. The prevailing mood of most of the pieces can be felt in the performance, characterised by a dreamy tranquillity which, in a balanced ensemble, is a sign against the hustle and bustle of time.
