Notes & Reviews:

In 2011, Swedish award-winning saxophonist Johannes Thorell released his highly praised debut CD 'The Forbidden Saxophone' (dBCD138) on dB Productions. That album contained music of composers whose music for various reasons was banned during Germany's Nazi era, but this time, Thorell presents something quite different: five Swedish contemporary composers, who now extend the saxophone repertoire in an exciting and revolutionary way.
