Recorded by DANIEL SCHNYDER & The Modern Art Septet on SECRET COSMOS
Enja: ENJ-5055 / Recorded in 1987
French Horn in F
A passionate tenor sax cadenza begins this composition which, while remaining founded in Schnyder's advanced compositional language, offers glimpses of traditional jazz harmony. One of the biggest challenges is the execution of complex rhythmic figures at a slow tempo (quarter note = ca. 52). This will put a group's musical maturity and training to the test.
SOLOS: There are tenor sax and flute solos over some unusual and occasionally fast-moving changes.
DANIEL SCHNYDER (b. 1961). Like Gunther Schuller and David Amram, saxophonist and flutist, Daniel Schnyder, has achieved success in both the Jazz and Classical fields and many of his compositions are an effective merging of these disciplines, featuring solo improvisation and complex orchestral textures. In addition to recording his Jazz septets, Daniel has composed music for the Vienna Art Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, The Milwaukee Symphony, the Chicago Symphonietta and has recorded with Hubert Laws, Kenny Drew, Jr. and Victor Lewis.
