Description

Composer Note:

'No Rest' had a long way up to the realization. In the beginning I was not sure, which would be best suitable woodwind instrument. A curious oboist when trying out suggested so many changes to me that energy and joke of the piece were lost. My friend, a Canadian saxophonist helped me with a first version for soprano saxophone. Then I had the idea to rework the piece for a duo. When I reported Gerard McChrystal of it, he was spontaneously inspired and wished a version for soprano saxophone and guitar - the ideal duo partner should be Craig Ogden. 'No Rest' landed in excellent hands and is dedicated to the two brilliant interpreters.
Ulrich Schultheiss


Performer Note:

I have been a fan of Uli's music since first hearing his fab work 'Witch Hunt' on the the Sibelius music site. When I formed my new duo with guitarist Craig Ogden in 2003 Uli was one of the first composers I approached to get a new piece. As ever Uli obliged and 'No Rest' was first performed at the British saxophone Congress in the Birmingham Conservatoire on 13.2.05.
Gerard McChrystal of the duo 'Pluck Blow'
