Notes & Reviews:

Multi-reed artist Milan Turkovic put together a group of twelve sought after soloists, international prizewinners and members of the panta rhei, clair-obscur, Alliage, and Sax Allemande ensembles. Selmer Saxharmonic untites 12 of the most established and well known German saxophonists and forms an outstanding and unique ensemble consisting of all the instruments of the saxophone family, from sopranino to bass saxophone. All the arrangements, including Dvorak's "Slavonic Dances," Milhaud's "Scaramouche," and Shostakovich's "Jazz Suite," seem to have been composed just for these saxophonists. Moreover, they successfully venture into Gershwin's jazz world, and Jean Matitia's "Devil's Rag" forms a special high point.
