Alliage Quintet I / Quintette Alliage:  From Russia with Love / Bons baisers de Russie



The Alliage quintet is one of Europe’s most creative and successful saxophone ensembles. Its characteristics are seen in a large diversity in style, and also in the blending of different epochs and manners of playing. This is also represented in their name: “alliage” is the French term for “alloy”, referring to the saxophone as an alloy of copper and zinc. In the broader sense, it stands for the musical ideal of the five musicians forming one homogeneous whole, and for their perfectly balanced playing. The quintet was founded by Daniel Gauthier, currently the only professor for classical saxophone in Germany (Hochschule für Musik, Cologne) and the ensemble’s leader and soprano saxophone. He is joined by three of today’s best soloists on saxophone Hayrapet Arakelyan, alto; Simon Hamrath, tenor; and Sebastian Pottmeier, baritone. The quintet is completed by the Korean pianist Jang Eun Bae, an experienced and well-versed chamber musician. The quintet’s core repertoire consists of well-known masterpieces of all epochs, cleverly arranged for the ensemble with exceptional sensitivity. Current programs include Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Rimski-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Bizet’s Carmen and Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

Le quintette Alliage est l’un des ensembles de saxophone les plus créatifs et réussis d’Europe. Il se caractérise par une vaste variété de styles et l’union de diverses époques et manières de jouer. Le mot alliage représente le cuivre et le zinc qui composent le saxophone mais aussi l’idéal musical des cinq musiciens réunis en un tout homogène et l’équilibre parfait de leur jeu. Le quintette a été fondé par Daniel Gauthier, seul professeur de saxophone en Allemagne, chef du groupe et saxophone soprano. Font également partie d’Alliage trois des meilleurs solistes du saxophone, Hayrapet Arakelyan, alto; Simon Hamrath, ténor et Sebastian Pottmeier, baryton ainsi que le pianiste coréen Jang Eum Bae, chambriste d’expérience et connaisseur. Le répertoire fondamental du quintette est constitué de chefs-d’oeuvre de toutes les époques arrangés avec art et sensibilité. À l’heure actuelle, on peut surtout entendre Les Quatre Saisons de Vivaldi, Le Songe d’une nuit d’été, Schéhérazade de Rimski- Korsakov, Carmen de Bizet et Porgy and Bess de Gershwin.

    WHAT THE CRITICS SAY ABOUT ALLIAGE QUINTET: “The four wind gentlemen showed themselves as sovereign virtuosos of their instruments with an infectious desire to create.”   — FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE   “… cohesive blend, crystalline articulation, beguiling range of instrumental colours and deep understanding of musical structure.”   — THE AUSTRALIAN   “Storms applause at the end of the night broughtthe musicians back for a rousing arrangement of America, another highlight of a special concert.   — NEWCASTLE HERALD   “The musical level of the Alliage is phenomenal and creates a listening pleasure par excellence.”   — PIZZICATO   “ What they are really doing is fantastic pioneer work on their instrument. In the history of the violin, for example, it was Paganini that made the violin into what it is today. And I think we can say that the Alliage have accomplished something with their saxophones that nobody else to date has.”   — JOSEPH LENDAVY ABOUT THE ALLIAGE ON WDR 3   “…verve and virtuosity”   — DEUTSCHLAND RADIO   “The Alliage Quintet was irresistible and immediately captivated the audience.”   ˘ STUTTGARTNER ZEITUNG
