Rosina Auditorium, Abbotsford Convent, 1 St Heliers St, Abbotsford VIC 3067, Australia


We associate the saxophone with jazz, but Adolphe Sax always intended it as a classical instrument, marrying the woodwinds’ facility with the brass family’s projection. The instrument’s superstar Niels Bijl reveals the poetic range of this beautiful instrument in chamber music ranging from Webern’s haunting quartet, through to the bristling energy of Franco Donatoni’s Hot.
