Saxophone: UNCOVERED

  • Chapel Performance Space 4649 Sunnyside Ave N Seattle, WA, 98103 United States (map)

Expanding the contemporary classical saxophone repertoire, Kevin Baldwin will premiere new works by local Seattle composers, as well as lesser-performed pieces from famed composers Luciano Berio, Gerard Grisey, and Giacinto Scelsi. All of the works will focus on exploring extended techniques and various compositional methods of dealing with the resultant sounds. These pieces include Berio’s “Sequenza VIIb” and Sceli’s “Tre Pezzi” for soprano saxophone, and Grisey’s “Anubis et Nout” for baritone saxophone. These works, and the created by local Seattle composers, will use a variety of techniques unique to the saxophone to create a unique concert experience.
