Live-DVD-Production/Anniversary Concert: 20 Years of KontraSax
(Georg Ruby)

... virtuoso dialogue, rousing enthusiasm, they have been playing together for 20 years as a working band and part of their personal self-concept, perhaps in the form of a life-long-lasting musical relationship. It is plain to see: this artistic affinity, sometimes turbulent career in musical understanding and communication.

The present recording of the historical entrance hall of the Oberlandesgericht/Cologne — a grand building — documented an unusual anniversary concert: the compositions were written for musical parameters of the extreme acoustics ( the room’s 12- second reverberation). It worked. The unusual situation supports the sound, as the duo’s third partner. It allows time for reflection and amplifies the meditative character of KontraSax.
