Schattenspiel at the Scandinavian Saxophone Festival

Poster for Scandinavian Saxophone Festival 2012After premiering Schattenspiel [Update, 12/4: now titled some­thing golden in the night] with sax­o­phonist Haruka Inoue at IRCAM on Saturday night, I am in Drammen, Norway, for tonight’s per­form­ance of the same piece by Australian sax­o­phonist Joshua Hyde at this year’s Scandinavian Saxophone Festival. The fest­ival runs all week and fea­tures above all a series of mas­ter­classes for young sax­o­phon­ists. Tonight’s con­cert is titled ‘Saxophone Today’ and Josh is also playing works by Sam Andreyev, Chris Dench, Liza Lim, Dai Fujikura, Philip Venables, Bruno Maderna and Luciano Berio. I’m also looking for­ward to the ‘Late Night In C’ on Wednesday, though I might need my earplugs…
