    Hans Thomalla: “Albumblatt II” for Saxophone-Quartet
    We know albums – or Poesiealbum, as they are called in German – from our childhood: the
    collection of entries from friends or family as an attempt to hold onto something ephemeral:
    seemingly inseparable friendship, a notable experience, a song or a poem that should not be
    forgotten. My Albumblatt-compositions are studies of these attempts to get a hold of such
    unsteady phenomena.
    The building-blocks of Albumblatt II are saxophone-multiphonics – fragile acoustic
    phenomena that are the result of a difficult balancing act of air-pressure, embouchure, and
    fingering. They are never entirely predictable in regards to the time they need to unfold and
    the pitches they consist of. Their perception drifts between wild acoustic
