About this album

Ensemble SEV: Jonathan Chazan - tenor saxophone Dennis Sobolev - electric guitar Dan Weinstein - cello Ido Akov - piano Yael Barolsky - violin ‘Hieroglyph’ is a word that history has gradually prised away from its linguistic roots as the Greek term for sacred carvings. Over time it came to be associated principally with the enigmatic symbols found in Egyptian burial sites and because these symbols resisted translation for so many centuries the word hieroglyph became a synonym for incomprehensibility. It was the discovery of an artefact – the so-called ‚Rosetta Stone‘, containing both hieroglyphs and parallel texts in other scripts – that in the early 19th century made translation possible: understand one text and the decoding could begin. Perhaps we follow a similar path when we listen to unfamiliar music. But what are the parallel texts: titles, other music that sounds similar, or a text like this? (Christopher Fox)
