Gnigler: Straight On, Downstairs, 2nd Door Left

Founded in 2013 by the young Austrian saxophonist Jakob Gnigler, the sextet has created its own musical world, full of the unexpected and the unpredictable. The individual versus the collective, composition versus improvisation, listening habits versus artistic intention – everywhere, contrasts are celebrated, established thought pa erns questioned, hierarchies upended. Find the album right here.

Xiaoyong Chen: Imaginative Reflections

The sounds on this album seem to come from another world. They spread through space, then disappear, or rather: fade away, evaporate, crystallize, settle as a sediment. This music is about fading away, about reverberations, echoes. European instruments sound Asian, and Asian instruments are integrated into European art music. Find the album right here.

Arvo Pärt: Anima

This album is the first-ever compilation of all compositions by Pärt that have been transcribed for saxophone quartet – revealing them, so to speak, without words, “only” through breath, through oscillating columns of air. The Italian Alea Saxophone Quartet master this task brilliantly. Find the album right here.

iris electrum

iris electrum

[...] contains pop music of stunning grandeur, and of moving simplicity. Sincerely recommended! 


Firmly rooted in traditional folk music from Austria yet branching out in every possible musical direction, Alma make music that comes straight from the soul and goes directly your legs.

Alma: Oeo (Teaser)
iris electrum: of tigers and owls (no future, no past)
CPSS: Bold
Vinko Globokar


Archaic sounds, songs as psychodramas, plowing through the depths and shallows of the orchestra: experience Globokar’s cosmos of original, intense music. 
John Cage

Sonatas and Interludes

The master of the prepared piano tackles small musical forms with his accustomed originality in his Sonatas and Interludes. 
Morton Feldman

For Bunita Marcus

"This work, which I have dedicated to Bunita Marcus, [...] deals with the death of my mother, and with the notion of a slow death."
