"The CD The Big Picture contains two cycles of compositions by Fred Frith. There is on the one hand The Big Picture – For Saxophone Quartet and Two Improvising Soloists and then there is the legendary series of compositions Freedom in Fragments that Fred Frith wrote in the nineties.

On The Big Picture the improvisations of pianist Katharina Weber and drummer Lucas Niggli contrast with the notated choir for saxophone of the Arte Quartet. Fred Frith wrote Freedom in Fragments originally for the Rova Quartet. Here the series of compositions – comprising 23 different pieces that can be played in various arrangements – exhibit brilliant new forms and new interpretations.
