Chamber Hall’s series PERSONALLY
In the concert programme “Bach. Groove. Saxophones” the experienced Riga Saxophone Quartet meets percussionist Guntars Freibergs, one of the most prominent Latvian musicians of the young generation, who has been nominated several times for the Grand Music Prize. It is noteworthy that in Latvia such a set of musicians will play on one stage for the first time – the full sounds of four saxophones complemented by a variety of percussion instruments, including marimba, drums and vibraphone. Also, the repertoire chosen by the musicians is diverse – from the repositioning of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “English Suite” for this unusual ensemble to the legendary “Rebonds B” of percussion instruments by avantgarde master of the 20th century Iannis Xenakis, as well as jazzy moods and references to the music of different nations, and the great intrigue as new work!
