Pop Jazz debut recording GUARDIAN ANGEL

Many times in my life I have felt the presence of Guardian Angels that have kept me safe from danger and that have also inspired my creativity. This release is my first collaboration with Grammy Award winning studio wizard Pål Svenre and more is to come.
This is my debut smooth pop jazz recording:

Anders Paulsson: Sopransaxofonkonserter

Publicerad 2012-11-21 10:14

Sopransaxofon i harmoniskt uruppförande

Ett verk med stor skönhet och överraskande effekter bjöds i uruppförande under torsdagens konsert på Norrlandsoperan.

Musik

Golden Harmony
Dirigent: Christoph Altstaedt Solist: Anders Paulsson, sopransaxofon
Norrlandsoperans Symfoniorkester
Konsertsalen
Norrlandsoperan

Sopransaxofon är en familjens minsta instrument stämd en oktav över den större tenorsaxofonen. Vid gårdagskvällens välbesökta konsert med Norrlandsoperans symfoniorkester och den tyske dirigenten Christoph Altstaedt på pulten var Anders Paulsson solist. Han är förmodligen den första musikern i världen med en solistkarriär på detta i konsertsammanhang relativt sällsynta instrument.

Han har spelat bland annat med Sankt Petersburg Philharmonic, Sveriges Radios Symfoniorkester och nu specialskrivet för vår egen i ett uruppförande av Rolf Martinssons (f 1956) konsert Golden Harmony.

Att Anders Paulsson också är jazzmusiker märks i de jazziga passager som förekommer i ett verk med stor skönhet och överraskande effekter.

Han spelade solostämman dessutom utan direkt notstöd vilket imponerar. Styckets första del symboliserar verkligen titeln, då undersköna harmonier och nästan naturlyriska passager fångar lyssnaren och den andra delen i ett hastigare tempo, suggestivt och med en enastående färgpalett!

John Chrispinsson och Sharon Jåma talar med några av landets främsta hjärnor, bland annat batteriforskaren Christina Lampe-Önnerud och högenergiprofessorn Sven Kullander. Kungen står som värd för samtalsserien, som är inspelad i Bernadottebiblioteket på Kungliga slottet i Stockholm.

De kungliga akademierna möts i fyra 90 minuter långa samtal – i närvaro av bland annat kungen, kronprinsessan och drottningen – för att prata om hur jordens resurser ska räcka, vad som händer med människan i den globaliserade världen och hur vårt förhållande till kunskap i Internets tidevarv påverkas när grundat och ogrundat är lika lättåtkomligt.
