Omri Ziegele, saxophonist, composer and und leader of the small orchestra Billiger Bauer, presents a new work with his orchestra. For its 15th anniversary, it quite aptly premiered the first performance of a 15-part work at the Zurich Theater Neumarkt with music and lyrics written by Ziegele. It is an ode to autumn with its glowing colours and also its reminder of nature’s transition. The first performance of this ambitious oeuvre was an unforgettable experience – and a huge success with the audience and the critics. This piece is now finally available on CD and we listen, spellbound, to these "Herbstlieder". Jazz critic Manfred Papst (editor of „Die Neue Zürcher Zeitung am Sonnntag“) writes: «A number of different elements play a role in
Billiger Bauer’s music: from Igor Strawinsky and Kurt Weill to the Vienna Art Orchestra. But one thing remains clear: It is about intensity, about a spiritual impetus. You can feel the passion of a John Coltrane. It excludes neither introspection nor a sense of humour … A gentle kind of melancholia permeates this complex and at the same time accessible piece of music with its different layers of rhythms and its innovative orchestration.»
