Peter Ehwald & Le Septuor De Grand Matin
Liner Notes: Arthur Lea, September 2018
Saxophonist and composer Peter Ehwald wrote the music for Le Septuor de Grand Matin in the blue light of the early morning hours. The work was born in the astute concentration of the peaceful calm before the day’s commitments. Ehwald worked intensively with processes of methodical composition, from which he developed the nine pieces. Oscillating between the jazz of ‘Wee Small Hours Of The Morning’ and Schönberg’s principle of variation, the listener is drawn into a dreamlike state of pure serenity. One can find 20th century European musical textures alongside free experimentation reminiscent of 1970s Jazz.
For his Septuor de Grand Matin (The Septet Of The Early Morning Hours) Peter assembled a terrific cast of musicians: Almut Kühne, Richard Koch, John Schröder, Stefan Schultze, Kathrin Pechlof and Matthias Akeo Nowak all interweave. Ehwald’s compositional specifications into a sublimely rhythmic chamber music - contemporary, and yet of timeless beauty.
