As part of the traditional European evening at the Ohrid Summer Festival, a concert at the “St. Sophia” church was held last night by Saxon Saxophone Quartet “Signum” from Germany. European artists performed works by Ravel, Shostakovich, Gershwin, Barbar, Piazzola, Koria and Zarvos.
Quintet “Signum” is composed of four young saxophonists, whom the critics say in their music bring a mixture of masculinity and sensitivity.
Last night in the church “St. Sophia”, playing without notes, the young saxophonists managed to “assign” to the audience of “Ohrid Summer”, which enjoyed their performance.
“The acoustics are fantastic. This place has a very great tradition here and therefore we are grateful that the “Ohrid Summer” gives us the opportunity to experience this extraordinary experience and play in such a place where history and history have been written for generations and generations. We are very glad that with our beautiful instruments we enter such a place as the acoustic “Sveta Sofija”, said Slovenian Alan Luzhar, part of this musical composition.
Blaz Kemperle, Eric Nestler, Alan Luzhar and Guerino Belarossa formed the quartet in 2006. They are academic musicians who graduated from music colleges in Cologne, Vienna and Amsterdam.
Behind the “Signum” quartet there are many performances on prestigious scenes in the world, but also numerous awards. This season they take their performances to the newly opened concert hall in Hamburg, in the grand hall of the Philharmonic in St. Petersburg, as well as on tours to Poland, Belgium, Italy, Bulgaria, Austria, Germany and South Korea.
