My gratefulness to Andrés Gomis, Josetxo Silguero, Angel Soria and Michael Romero, components of SIGMA Project, for the extraordinary and unforgettable work they realized at the premiere of my work [Simog-Civitella].

The precision and fineness with which each of them approached the study of every part is admirable; also the success in the way of investigating and deciding the global sound that matched every situation, not always easy to find for the musical notation is precise, but not absolute. What a great dose of imagination is required always on the side of the interpreter, exploring and comprehending the aesthetics and the techniques of the composer whom he or she interprets.

I can only be grateful, and congratulate them, on the perfect connection with the ideas I expressed, both from the technical and poetical point of view.

Their way of working includes the listening of many works of the composer they are working with, and the deep reflection on his way of thinking the music, which turns SIGMA Project into one of the best quartets of saxophones at the international panorama.
