Trombonisten Daniel Stighäll har samlat en skara väl meriterade musiker i gruppen Serikon. Tillsammans spelar de musik från 1500-talet.
Det är känt att den tidiga musiken till stora delar var improviserad. Den traditionen har mer eller mindre dött ut, men ensemblen Serikon gör här ett försök att väcka den till liv igen.
Några av musikerna, liksom sopranen Anna Jobrant, hör hemma i bland annat Göteborg Baroque: Per Buhre, Anders Ericson, Magnus Kjellson och Daniel Stighäll. Bland de övriga solisterna märks den internationellt verksamma sinkaspelaren William Dongois, en sann virtuos på sitt instrument.
Musiken är komponerad av såväl kända tonsättare som Orlando di Lasso, Cipriano de Rore och Palestrina som mindre bekanta och anonyma mästare. Daniel Stighäll och hans ensemble har också beställt ny musik av några svenska tonsättare; ett första prov på det avslutar denna CD: Aron Hidmans Preludium.

 

”Runt välkända melodier av bland annat De Rore, Lassus och Palestrina bygger musikerna en rad sensuellt dansanta improvisationer och det mjuka blåsarsoundet är exemplariskt … en övertygande debut.” (Sara Norling, Tidig Musik)

”Serikon … visar än en gång att det tidiga musiklivet på västkusten i högsta grad är att räkna med.” Betyg: 4 av 5. (Sara Norling, Dagens Nyheter)

”… ett rikt album med ypperliga musiker”. (Lena K Andersson, Lira Musikmagasin)

”Liksom i all annan improvisationskonst handlar det om fingertoppskänsla, inte för lite, inte för mycket, men framför allt inte ointressant. Den konsten behärskar Serikon.” Betyg 4 av 5. (Mikael Bengtsson, Norran)

”What is most apparent is the soft, lyrical playing of the trombonists and how well they blend in with William Dongois’s wooden cornetto … Of particular interest is Stighäll’s exceptional playing in the Pulchra es amica mea by Palestrina … Those who think period-instrument recordings are inherently flawed should listen to this CD; the playing is first-rate throughout. The linder notes are the best the writer has ever seen, with twelve pages of detailed information on the music and the instruments … This is a fascinating album, unique in approach, and gives us insight into a trombone style lost for years.” (David Mathie, International Trombone Association Journal)

”… the superb Swedish ensemble Serikon … is an engaging one that understands the synergy of collaboration. Yet individually there is also much to savor. The beautiful cornett playing by William Dongois is wonderfully vowel-rich, with gracefully contoured phrasing and an exceedingly gratifying low register. Daniel Stighäll’s trombone playing is both as sensitive as it is agile … If Serikons musical routes are ’uncharted’, we might in the future all hope they become more frequently traveled paths, and for that particular journey the members of Serikon will continue to prove wonderfully congenial traveling companions. Buon viaggio!” (Steven Plank, Historic Brass Society)

”The turn-taking is elegant, and the full ensemble smooth and lush, The playing is very fluent and musical. There are some dance standards, a very full instrumental group of string and wind swinging into action for passamezzo antico. Whichever hypothetical character commanded such extravagant resources would have been very pleased.” (Stephen Cassidy, Early Music Review)

The trombone-player Daniel Stighäll has collected a group of highly qualified musicians in his ensemble Serikon. Together they play music from the 16th century.
It is well known that much of the early music was improvised. This tradition has more or less died out, but the ensemble Serikon is now trying to revive it.
Some of the musicians, as does the soprano Anna Jobrant, also belong to the much praised Göteborg Baroque: Per Buhre, Anders Ericson, Magnus Kjellson and Daniel Stighäll. Among the other soloists of Serikon is the internationally active cornetto-player William Dongois, a true virtuoso on his instrument.
The music on this CD is composed by famous composers like Orlando di Lasso, Cipriano de Rore and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, as well as by some less well known or anonymous masters.
One of the ambitions of the ensemble Serikon and Daniel Stighäll is to commission new music by composers of today. The last piece on the CD is a first example of this ambition: Preludium by Aron Hidman.
