The new explosive work from Aleksey Igudesman "Take It To Eleven" was composed specifically for Trio KlaViS (piano, violin and saxophone). It is a firework of interlocking rhythms and wild exotic melodies. The title refers to the cult film "This Is Spinal Tap"; a satire about a (fictional) rock band which is going downhill. For them, the control level can be turned to eleven, one more than usual!
(...) il lavoro di Aleksey Igudesman, composizione di respiro e ambito contemporanei, risulta molto gradevole, interessante e coinvolgente, per l’esecuzione come per l’ascolto. Consigliato.
