Das Tiroler Streichquartett Sonarkraft⁴ formierte sich 2014 aus Musikern des Orchesters Sonarkraft. Der gemeinsame Wunsch zusammen auch Kammermusik zu machen und die Freude an der Darbietung unkonventioneller Werke sind maßgebliche Faktoren der künstlerischen Arbeit von Sonarkraft⁴. Sarah und Lydia Kurz – Violinen, Andreas Trenkwalder – Bratsche und Johanna Niederbacher – Cello musizieren seit dem gemeinsamen Studium in Innsbruck in verschiedenen Besetzungen zusammen.
Outreach Music Festival Schwaz 2022
Jazz festivals worldwide have seen Alex Sipiagin performing with Dave Holland, Michael Brecker, the Mingus groups, to name a few. He has recorded as one of the featured soloists in Grammy Award-winning and nominated albums such as Dave Holland Big Band’s “What Goes Around”, and “Overtime”, Michael Brecker Quindectet’s “Wide Angles” and most recently Dafnis Prieto Big Band’s “Into the Sunset”. Sipiagin also has more than 20 solo recordings to his credit, the most recent being “Ascent to the Blues” under the Posi-Tone label.
Alex Sipiagin will present for the first time in his illustrious career, new arrangements of his original compositions written for solo trumpet and string quartet.
The arrangements, which are written by Sipiagin himself, are multi-colored and based mostly on modern jazz, with elements of classical and Brazilians roots.
This debut at the Outreach Music Festival will feature Sonarkraft⁴ String Quartet, a professional ensemble created out of the string orchestra Sonarkraft.
