They've taken to the skies - the chamber orchestra and theseptet of Sarah Buechi - masterfully beyond all categorisation.The singer's septet Contradiction of Happiness with piano,bass, drums and three string players is in itself already somethingof a polyphonic and liberated orchestra. Sarah Buechi hasexpanded this ensemble with the chamber orchestra of theJena Philharmonic. The success of the first performance wasoverwhelming and the recordings on this album, which also tookplace in Jena, enable one to experience and relive the playfulease with which this ambitious project was accomplished.Classical intonation, Jazz vocalisations, chanting, microtonesreminiscent of Indian music and Konnakol, rhythmicvocalisation - all these elements exist companionably in thecompositions. "A music full of the joy of understanding," writesGerman jazz journalist Bert Noglik in the liner notes, "ofthe flapping of the wings of the poetic in the joint flight of theseptet and the orchestra."
