Title: Quattro Stagioni
Label: Dacapo

On this album, two of Denmark's most exciting young ensembles, Ekkozone and Alpha, join forces in exhilarating performances of the Danish composer Peter Navaroo-Alonso's original response to two Vivaldi masterpieces, the iconic Four Seasons and the Concerto in Si minore, just one of the many virtuosic violin concertos from the great Baroque master's hand. Both works are influenced by Navarro-Alonso's great interest in classic electroacoustic effects such as delay, loop, acceleration and deceleration. In Si minore he directly uses tape and loop pedal in three of the movements; in Quattro Stagioni he imitates the effects acoustically. Alpha is a unique Danish ensemble, founded by Bolette Roed, Peter Navarro-Alonso, and David Hildebrandt. As early as 2003, they were the first group to explore the interesting instrument combination of recorder, saxophone, and percussion, attracted by it's many possibilities. Ekkozone was formed in 2013 and quickly became a household name at Copenhagen Jazz-house. Ekkozone stands for classical avant-garde, minimalism, and cross-over, consisting of Scandinavian and British musicians in various formations, led by percussionist and conductor Mathias Reumert.
