Ensemble

Nederlands Saxofoon Octet

The Saxophone, Voice of Sax, has a rather extensive family of instruments with an inexhaustible color spectrum. From the sparklingly high sopranino, via the well-known soprano, alto, tenor and baritone, to the roaring, fat sound of the bass saxophone. The Dutch Saxophone Octet, founded at the beginning of 2014 by a number of freshly graduated saxophonists, plays the invention of Adolphe Sax like an orchestra and ventures into arrangements of all kinds of instrumentations. Among other things, they received the right from the Schönberg Foundation to edit and implement the fantastic 'Verklärte Nacht'. The same applies to the 'Canto Ostinato' by Simeon ten Holt.
Among other things, they gave concerts during the Amsterdam Canal Festival, in the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and at the Mañana Mañana Festival. The CD presentation of their debut CD, recorded under the Cobra Records label, will take place on 12 November in the small hall of the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
