The European Saxophone Ensemble 2012 brings together twelve young saxophone players from twelve different countries.
The repertoire selected by artistic director Guillaume Orti was especially written and taught to the Ensemble by five challenging leading European composers. Each mentor with singular approaches: Ronan Guilfoyle, Alan Hilario, Kari Ikonen, Ingrid Laubrock and Stéphane Payen.
The saxophonists, aged between 18 and 34 years old, come from different musical backgrounds: from virtuous contemporary music soloist to punk baritone saxophonist player, from jazz tenor saxophonist to afro-soul Scandinavian baritone, from chamber soprano to alto playing in Eastern European traditional ensembles...
A very exciting ensemble full of positive energy, with an incredible group sound.
