Notes & Reviews:

The four young musicians of the Berlage Saxophone Quartet embark on an enthralling and virtuosic journey around the world, from Spain by way of France to Norway, then eastward to Russia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary, and finally with a grand leap to Argentina - always in quest of masterpieces of popular inspiration, the best of which have been brought together on this Super Audio CD.

Even though they are still young in years, the four Berlages have already earned many an award on their musical travels, including the European Music Prize for Young People and the first prize at the German Music Competition. For their MDG debut the alto saxophonist Peter Vigh has contributed some arrangements; he is intimately familiar with his ensemble.
