Tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 – ERIC GROSS (b.1926)
SUITE LATIN AMERICAN op.302 (2008) for multi-instrumentalist Saxophone Quartet.

The TANGO CONCERTANTE, completed in 2007 received a very enthusiastic reception by the members of the Fo(u)r Fans - Saxophone Quartet to whom this Suite is dedicated. It was therefore decided to create a suite of movements in a Latin American style. The title of each movement indicates the style, mood and rhythmic provenance of the musical content, with the BALADA providing a calm and gentle contrast to the other, livelier movements. Because of the versatility of the instrumentalists for whom the suite has been composed, the composer succumbed to the temptation to provide additional variety of timbre by utilising also instruments other than the various saxophones, which the members of this ensemble play so expertly.
Track 1 – Tango Concertante
Track 2 – Rumbaphonics
Track 3 – Balada
Track 4 – Samba
Track 5 – Hat
This Suite was recorded privately in Weimar, Germany in 2008 and the fifth movement, “Hatdance” will be recorded in due course.
The members of the Fo(u)r Fans- Saxophone Quartet are: • Ruediger https://www.tradebit.com Clt.
• Berndt Klinke-Alto Sax/https://www.tradebit.com Clt./B’Clt. • Holger https://www.tradebit.com Clt./ B’Clt.
