SAGITTARIUS - New Album Out This Month, Available For Streaming In Full

Eight years after its last full-length release, the German apocalyptic folk/neoclassical music ensemble Sagittarius will publish its fourth album entitled Songs Of Dream And Death on 25th November via Die Neue Runde/Pierre Marteau.

Having been active for more than two decades, Sagittarius looks back upon a musical œuvre that may be regarded as impressive. Though never having fully cast aside an insiders' tip reputation, three full-length albums (Die Große Marina in 2003, Songs From The Ivory Tower in 2008, The Kingdom Come in 2012) and several limited edition releases, including the Fragmente series and the well-acclaimed mini album Aithiopis in 2017, established the project as one of the main protagonists of the neoclassic genre.

Sagittarius is the brainchild of composer and pianist Cornelius Waldner, who founded the project in the end of 1998, and which since then has served as his artistic main outlet through which he transfered his obsessions, emotions and interests to music.

Sagittarius' new opus Songs Of Dream And Death contains 14 dark and sullen neoclassical compositions. Once again offering an epic joyride through the poetical worlds of symbolism, expressionism and romanticism, with poems by among others Stefan George, Karl Wolfskehl, Pär Lagerkvist and Count Eric Stenbock set to music, the album underlines the project's role as a sophisticated musical interpreter of traditional German and European word art. For this release, Waldner was once again joined by vocalist Herr Twiggs, a regular contributor of vocals to Sagittarius since 2008. The entire opus is already available for streaming in its entirety and you can hear it below. Link
