CD Release “Gletsc”
Following the world premiere of Mischa Käser’s composition ‘Gletsc’ at the Lucerne Festival in 2009, we recorded the six ‘glacial deposit’ movements of this unusual piece at the beginning of this year. The marvellous water sounds of the percussion artist Pit Gutmann accompany the work. » Gallery
The CD will be released in the second half of 2015.
At the beginning of 2015, hornroh announced a change to its line-up once again: Heléne Berglund, our bass player, said goodbye to the quartet. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for her loyalty over the years and wish her all the best for her future musical endeavours.
New to the ensemble is the jazz trombonist Lukas Briggen who lives in Basel. With him we were able to fill the gap in the bass section and are looking forward to one day being confronted with jazz influences. Welcome Lukas!
