Four free-spirited musicians have come together in this group to explore new sounds for the saxophone, and their band name hints at what they stand for: the Balinese word ‘keybar’ means ‘to flare up’ or ‘to burst open’ – an appropriate metaphor for the powerful and virtuoso music of this quartet. Keybart have made it their trademark to treat their repertoire with creativity and artistic licence. The framework for their Chorin concert is provided by music from Rameau, Bach and a piece by Ravel set in the spirit of French baroque music. Within, we hear a premiere by the Spanish composer Turina and the energetic and captivating Cha by the American Julia Wolfe.
