The Cultural Village Foundation in cooperation with the Embassy of Belgium in Qatar Present the Hommage à Sax by the The Belgian Saxophone Ensemble on the 29th August in the Opera House – KATARA. Six mouthpieces, 60 fingers, 152 keys – but just one aim: to play their hearts out! At each of its concerts the Belgian Saxophone Ensemble tries to create a unique unrepeatable world of sound with which the audience feels completely involved. Six passionate individuals have found each other through a shared desire to play the latest acoustic music, and they want you to be part of it. When Adolphe Sax built his first saxophone, his aim was to create a wind instrument that could match the melodic versatility of stringed instruments. He succeeded! The saxophone is an instrument with enormous scope for expression. From the bass saxophone all the way through to the sopranino, there is an unbelievably broad range of musical colours. If you then add in all the percussive effects, you can do more or less anything with this wonderful instrument. The musicians in the Belgian Saxophone Ensemble have full mastery of all aspects of their instruments, and demonstrate their skill with acrobatic ease.
