#MadeinBCN is the result of several years of work with different composers who have or have had any kind of connection with Barcelona, city that has often been the meeting point between creator and performer.

The singularities of Barcelona have made it one of those few cities in the world that go beyond borders and make itself known and recognized abroad.

The recorded works come from a very careful selection of original pieces for baritone saxophone, solo and with different types of electronics, written in the last 20 years. Each of them will pose a very personal approach to the instrument and extracts an extraordinarily rich timbre result.

I hope you will appreciate this sound universe and that this disc does not leave you indifferent: each work is capable of creating different moods if you listen to them with your ears and mind open.

Recorded, edited and mixed by Antonio Velasco Polonio at Calafell Sound Recording Studio in January 2018.

Press comments

The sound blocks and rests of A CHILLIDA, by Mercè Capdevila, open an excellent album

Undoubtedly, the chosen works, the extraordinary interpretation and the immeasurable technical precision of Joan Martí-Frasquier make this album a meeting place for all those listeners who wish to approach the incredible sound of the saxophone and, particularly, highly recommended for those who want to delve into the new currents of Catalan contemporary music
