Horst Tress, Magazin Köllefornia (Germany)
"The second CD tip has the wonderful title of "Deep Dreams" and is presented by the Norwegian Wind Ensemble.
A sometimes meditative, sometimes exotic and groovy album comes along. Here you can relax experience/observe the depths of the oceans, the universe and the human soul. Have fun."
VPRO JAZZ (Holland)
Symphonic music of a large Norwegian Wind Ensemble, composed and arranged by German woodwind player Steffen Schorn. This man plays all saxophones, clarinets and flutes, from very high and small (f.ex. clarinet in E flat major) to low and large (f.ex. Contrabassax). He plays with himself and also guest musicians: Roger Hanschel saxophones, Rob Waring vibes, Knut Aalefjår and Rune Arnesen drums.
Beautiful music! From whispers and soft hum to great big band sounds.
Musik an sich (Germany)
Steffen Schorn goes together with the Norwegian Wind Ensemble on the way to a musical cosmos of a special kind in the realization of his 9-movement suite Tiefenträume. The work combines Schorn's central composition terms of structure and sensibility to the creation of new musical forms of expression in rhythm and modality in a most exciting form. Guest soloist is Roger Hanschel.
Tiefenträume offers countless exciting musical moments, draws the listener into attractive sound worlds and takes him on a voyage of discovery into a new harmonious universe.
