Listen free to Paul Giger – Alpstein (Zäuerli, Karma Shadub and more). Violin virtuoso Paul Giger revisits his roots with this, his second solo recording, Alpstein, which features pieces for violin, saxophone, and percussion based on the folk traditions of the Alpstein region of Switzerland. Three pieces here are entitled "Zäuerli" - named after the sad majestic "natur yodel" tradition of the Outer Rhoden region. These are sweeping and majestic with high harmonic bowstrokes

Paul Giger violin Jan Garbarek tenor saxophone Pierre Favre percussion Musicians from Appenzell (Switzerland) ppel, schellenschötter Recorded 1990/91 at Rainbow Studio, Oslo; 1990 at Trogen Engineer: Jan Erik Kongshaug Produced by Manfred Eicher. For this, his follow-up album, Giger is joined by saxophonist Jan Garbarek and percussionist Pierre Favre for a sonic portrait of his homeland. Delving into folk traditions both alive and mummified, this trio gives us as wintry and as visceral an experience as possible without ever stepping foot in its eponymous mountain range. Alpstein is a cosmic alignment in and of itself. Like all of Giger’s albums, itis markedly different from the rest but touches us just as deeply. He may not always look to the same future, but he does draw from the same mythic past.
