Pago Libre & Friends
This old Irish saying is about John Wolf Brennan: “You don’t need to be crazy to be an artist — but it helps.” This CD is the most ambitious project of his entire life. 16-page booklet in German and English full of colour photos give an idea of what’s going on: full-scale wind orchestra, Pago Libre quartet plus three outstanding soloists, plus six guest musicians from Ireland. The big names of the Swiss scene are all there: Arkady Shilkloper, Christy Doran, Christian Zehnder, Patrice Heral. This madness was recorded live at the Alpentone Music Festival and witnessed the standing ovation of a huge crowd.
