His fans can expect to be thrilled! Anyone who assumed that Claus Boesser-Ferrari had reached the end of the line with his recordings so far, and that he had tried out all musical and improvisational possibilities, will now have to stand corrected thanks to In Praise of Shadows.
Using note cascades and virtuosic acoustic collages over and over again, Boesser-Ferrari creates poetic soundscapes and lets the music expand in time and space. He builds an almost seamless musical bridge between the modern jazz of a Charles Mingus and the psychedelic rock of Pink Floyd's guitarist Syd Barrett, adding his own compositions and adaptations of Lennon/McCartney, or even melodies by Martin Boettcher, composer for the Winnetou series. Pieces that are apparently diagonal opposites suddenly connect to form a harmonious whole and become unified in a poetic sound collage. One could say that Claus Boesser-Ferrari has explored galaxies that no human has ever heard before. Fasten your seatbelts!
