Romain Chaumont, Yanir Ritter, Olivier Duverger and Alexandre Galvane, young saxophonists trained in prestigious musical institutions in Europe (Vienna, Bordeaux, Milan) and recently graduated of the Hochschule of Bâle or Music Academy in Strasbourg, meet them and get together them in Alsace to perform contemporary and classical music.
In a warming and intimist ambiance, RE/SONO make you to discover original pieces for saxophone quartet with modern and varied sounds, and make them interact with classical and baroque pieces transcriptions. This saxophone quartet, versatile training with full sonorities and sometimes smooth accents, sometimes incisive, sometimes percussive, create link between ages and styles, playing with timelessness of instrument.

In 2018, RE/SONO started its first project of orders. In calling on three young composers, Matías Couriel, Sergio Nuñez Meneses and Mathias Berthod, RE/SONO wanted to build a triptych where each on would treat a facet of modern exodes, consequence of the Middle East wars. Aljamia is an echo of the horror of war, Voix perdues qui rament a representation of invisible waves created by the trip of exiled in sea, Aube is a vision of arrival in exiled country, where we would hear the feelings of an exiled facing discovery of a haven of peace but also difficulties to be make accepted. Facing this triptych, we will discover Durch of Fabien Lévy, tribute to Gérard Grisey, whose the title deals with the passage, the journey, the trip, and why not the exil ?
Like a counterpoint of complex languages of this four composers, the quartet sprinkles the concert of short Tapas, of Marc Mellits, more minimalist, danced echos or thoughtful, with savours of elsewhere.
