»Worlds Beyond« is Schnyder’s concept for a »new type« of chamber music: » ›Worlds Beyond‹ is a concentration of what is to me the essential element about this music: immediateness in expression, complexity in structure.« His ensemble Words Within Music, featuring the legendary David Taylor on bass trombone, Kenny Drew Jr. on piano and Schnyder himself on soprano and tenor saxophones, improvises on the basis of a score written in the form of a suite.

In »Faust«, Schnyder traces the influence of the old legend on German music through three centuries, guiding his trio through the history of Faustian-diabolic musical traditions. Reminiscences of Schubert, Wagner and Strauss, as well as of Liszt and Mahler sneak into the subconscious of the expressive compositions, which include improvisations as well as sections adhering to strict rules.

Daniel Schnyder, originally from Switzerland and now living in New York City, is active as a composer for large orchestras (e.g. RSO Berlin, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, etc.) and for soloists of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra; he has been invited as Composer in Residence e.g. by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Yehudi Menuhin Festival; and he is advisor for special projects to Kristjan Jaervi’s Absolute Ensemble.

The booklet includes notes by Schnyder himself, as well as a text on the phenomenon »Faust« by Swiss author Christoph Keller.

Recommendation
Franz Koglmann meets Vladimir Nabokov, the master of "chamber music in prose"
(literary critic Marcel Reich-Ranicki) and composer of crackling word sonatas. 
John Clark, Dave Taylor and Franz Hackl on French horn, trumpet and bass trombone are not just a brass trio but create a whole cosmos of sounds, styles and techniques. 
Gerald Preinfalk’s personal audio storybook explains why the importance of the saxophone is not only to be found in the jazz club.
