Saxophonist Yuri Honing comes after the successful album Desire, again with a jazz album that breathes peace, serenity, tension and mysticism. The inspiration comes from Honing’s love for classical music, history and art.
Honing was especially inspired by the beauty of Richard Wagner’s music (1813-1883) and his disciple Richard Strauss (1864-1949). Both were determined in their music, even though they did not match the taste of time. In track 4, Goldbrun IV, these two inspirations are processed.
Through all the influences and cooperation around this project it has become a Gesamtkunstwerk. In a second phase, September 22, 2018, the exhibition Goldbrun, a collaboration of artist Mariecke van der Linden and Yuri Honing, opens in the Museum of Funding in Zwolle with a special space for this occasion, with installations, music and oil painting.
