Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album might be described as a kind of personal audio storybook by Gerald Preinfalk, and a celebration of his woodwind instruments in a whirlwind of musical collaborations. One of the starting points for this project was a conversation with Harri Stojka during a long ride on the tour bus. Talking about their various other jobs, Preinfalk mentioned his involvement with Klangforum Wien as well as his professorship for classical saxophone at the Graz Music University, which triggered Stojka’s astonished reply: “Classical saxophone? There is no such thing, surely!” This album might be described as a kind of personal audio storybook by Gerald Preinfalk, and a celebration of his woodwind instruments in a whirlwind of musical collaborations.
