Event Details

The Classical Saxophone Project is pleased to present its 2012-2013 season finale.

This benefit performance will feature classical saxophonist Javier Oviedo accompanied by Orchestra 54 under the baton of Jean-Pierre Schmitt. The program includes Fantasia for tenor saxophone, 3 French horns, and strings by Heitor Villa Lobos, Mozart’s Divertimento in D major KV 136 and the New York premier of Samsara: concerto for saxophones and string orchestra by French composer Hélène Rasquier. Ms. Rasquier composed and dedicated this piece to Oviedo and Schmitt, who performed the  world premier in October, 2012 at the Salle Cortot in Paris with l’Orchestre Lamoureux. In the dedication, Ms. Rasquier describes her pieces as “of color and rhythm, of nostalgia and joy, in two words ‘La vie’.”
