The Aero Saxophone Quartet brings its trademark versatility and variety to their debut album; which embraces music from Glazunov to John Coltrane. Praised by Augusta Read Thomas for their ‘nuanced; colourful; and artfully sculpted’ performances; the award-winning Aero Quartet was formed in 2020 and has quickly established a reputation for wide-ranging programmes. This album spans classical and jazz; profound and light-hearted. Alongside Glazunov’s richly innovative music; we hear the evocative Danzón No. 5 (Portales de Madrugada) by Mexican composer Arturo Márquez; the playful Wapango by Cuban-American legend Paquito D’Rivera; and Ed Calle’s sultry Iberia Suite. There are thought-provoking works from Carlos Simon; whose Elegy (A Cry from the Grave) pays powerful tribute to Trayvon Martin; Eric Garner and Michael Brown; and from Guillermo Lago; whose Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) is dedicated to his many friends there. The release culminates in Coltrane’s Dear Lord; a mellow yet joyful affirmation of life.
