Christian Lauba ‘s ‘Mambo’ starts off as a traditional piece in this Latin style, but avant garde elements (multiphonics, meter changes, slap tongue, subtone) creep in slowly and gradually take over as the piece progresses. The piece’s last few pages (1:30-2:30) combines these two musical worlds to create a joyful finale.
Like all of Christian Lauba’s music, it demands of the saxophonists a mastery of extended techniques, convincing understanding of pop playing styles, and above all else: hours and hours of practice!
Mambo was composed for Keuris Quartet and Amstel Quartet and will appear on forthcoming our album “American Dream’
