Sax at the Opera

This program is forever young. The practice of Mozart's day to send the popular essence of the great operas in small instrumentation to the entire world, is regarded by us as harmony music of the 21st Century.

Powerful emotions and belcanto in the incredible sound format of classical saxophone.

The three award-winning musicians did not provide the audience with indigestible and heavy stuff for all the precision and mastery of its game but rather an extremely lively and masterfully played musical menu, spiced with charm, humour and winks, each peace of work being a homage to the original one. Everything was just perfect ....

 

Already in the first block - five Arias from Mozart's "Don Giovanni"- the well-known musical themes brought smiles on the faces of some listeners, at the Champagne Aria, in which the saxophone sounds tingled like the best wine, the the first spontaneous »Bravo shouts« were heard...

A jewel of musical art

  

Forget everything that you know so far about the saxophone playing, at least in the classical field. Since the way in which the trio "Sax Allemande" transformed operetta melodies and other works from the classical and romantic field for other instruments or orchestra, seems to be simply magic ........

"Chamber music at the highest level"

 

Mozart and saxophone? Mendelssohn and Sax? Beethoven and this instrument, which was "invented" in the mid-19th Century by the Belgian Adolphe Sax? Is that possible? It is. And how!

The mentioned classical and romantic composers have rarely sounded so fresh and elegant, so sophisticated and trenchant.

 

The Kulturmat should oblige "Sax Allemande" for a small but "very large" casting again immediately ..... "

Seducer on saxophones

 

When editing the most beautiful arias from Mozart's "Don Giovanni" at the start of the cheerful evening, a surprisingly lively, witty and elegant, aloof charming and yet well balanced reproduction of the thoroughly known musician emerges that gets particularly clear contours in purified, transparent shape...

Passau

.... Incredibly flexible and sophisticated, highly subtle and sensitive in sound. You can hear clarinets, oboes, and occasionally even flutes, bassoon or a painted double bass and are occasionally puzzled as to where the fourth player is sitting - in such a perfect way, the three instruments create an illusion of the great orchestral sound. Classical saxophone sound at the highest level has a name: Sax Allemande.

Bad Säckingen

 

.....With the opening track in Arias from Mozart's "Don Giovanni", the saxophonist's ability to draw wonderful smooth-contoured and ariose singing lines in the room impresses, with lightness, elegance and effortless brilliance, and last but not least a wit, which makes listening a carefree pleasure.  To introduce the audience into the world and time of Mozart, a time without cell phones, without CDs, without Youtube, it just took three such perfectly harmonising saxophone virtuosos .....
