Effective period / Period of releases: 2003 - 2017Sagittarius was founded by Cornelius Waldner in 1998. After several limited edition tape and vinyl releases, the second full-length album (on Cold Spring Records, UK) established the project as one of the main protagonists of the Neoclassic scene.
After a couple of changes in the line-up, Sagittarius now consists of the following members:
Cornelius Waldner (founder), Marcel P. (former guest musician & producer), Herr Twiggs (former guest vocalist) and Theresia W. (new member).
Although Philipp Jonas (Secrets Of The Moon) left the project after “Die große Marina”, he has stayed on as guest musician and collaborator to this day.
Sagittarius is heavily influenced by German (and European) classical art and literature. The project has set many poems to music, with special emphasis on Waldner’s main influence, German poet Stefan George and his “Kreis” (circle of friends), which included Ernst Morwitz, Karl Wolfskehl and others.
