About the Event

What is dance without movement? Which words do you choose for a song without lines of poetry and a singing voice? How do you express that in compositions for a saxophone quartet? The Maat Saxophone Quartet put those questions on the desk and chose pieces that focus on dance and song. Not literally, the effect comes alive in the minds of the listeners. If the music blows over like a cloud of poetry and dance, then the Maat Saxophone Quartet's mission has been accomplished. A 'tailor-made' lighting plan could easily result in a mildly hallucinatory experience. The jury about the Maat Saxophone Quartet: 'They speak the same language, literally and musically! Technically very high level, organic interplay and an insanely tight presentation. Their program is original and stimulating, you want to keep listening.'
