Nuova occasione di riascoltare dal vivo la pregevole rilettura di celebri pagine crimsoniane operata dal Delta Saxophone Quartet è offerta questa sera dal festival Rumori Mediterranei a Roccella Jonica (Rc): Chris Caldwell, Pete Whyman, Christian Forshaw e Tim Holmes, e con loro Gwilym Simcock. Crimson!

The Quartet has worked closely with many leading composers having commissioned works from Gavin Bryars, Steve Martland, Joe Duddell, Hugh Hopper, Mike Westbrook, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Michael Finnissy to name a few. The Quartet has always looked to extend the range/repertoire and possibilities of what a quartet of saxophones can present, combining a variety of musical genres and styles with a dynamic and informative presentation. Musical accolades are no stranger for Gwilym Simcock too, being a winner of the Perrier Award, BBC Jazz Awards 2005 and British Jazz Awards 2005. Gwilym was also the first BBC Radio 3 New Generation jazz Artist. His performances with Bill Bruford's Earthworks gives Gwilym the inside-edge and knowledge, which adds a real gravitas to this exciting project. The quartet is delighted that Gwilym has accepted their invitation to compose this new work Crimson, which combines the skills and tastes of music which sits somewhat beyond the shores of classical, jazz and rock.
