New Focus

Featuring Konrad Wiszniewski and Euan Stevenson and The Glasgow String Quartet

Glasgow based saxophonist Konrad Wizniewski joins forces with fellow Scottish compatriot pianist/arranger Euan Stevenson in launching their award winning, genre-bending musical adventure 'New Focus'.  This hefty nine-piece ensemble excitedly features The Glasgow String Quartet (comprising some of the finest virtuosos from the RSNO, and Scotland's leading string quartet), alongside Stevensonon piano leading the first call drum and bass team of Alyn Cosker (drums) and Michael Janisch (bass), Wizniewski at the helm on saxophones, and Alina Bzhezhinska on harp.  'New Focus' showcases a cinematic soundscape of through-composed melodies meeting cutting edge improvisation, drawing upon influences from across the musical spectrum and has just been nominated for Scottish Album of the Year 2013.
