Notes and Editorial Reviews

This ambitious debut release by Cleveland based saxophone duo Ogni Suono (Noa Even and Phil Pierick) explores new works, all written for the group, that extend the range of their instruments to include singing, speaking, and a beguiling vocabulary of breathing and vocal sounds. Working closely with an elite group of contemporary composers, Ogni Suono joins many other virtuoso wind instrumentalists and ensembles at the vanguard of instrumental and extended technique. These musicians are crafting a new body of work that embraces once disparate corners of contemporary performance practice- the conventional technical demands of complexity scores; the specialized vocabulary of multiphonics, key clicks, and other percussive techniques, and the Read more performative elements of spoken, sung, and intoned vocal sounds. Formed in 2009, Ogni Suono is committed to expanding the repertoire for saxophone duo by collaborating with living composers and offering diverse and adventurous programming to new audiences. Strong advocates of music education, Ogni Suono often pairs performances with master class, workshops, and outreach programs on a variety of topics. Read less
