The Saxophonia Festival invites you to come along on a trip of taste and music to Austria. Good music and fine wine, with professional stories about these two passions – that is a tradition that has been ongoing for some time at the Spīķeri Concert Hall.
On Valentine’s Day, the audience will hear melodies from world-famous films such as Lord of the Rings, Captain Hook, Heart of Ice and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, as well as melodies from Austrian films. The Five Sax ensemble is one of the craziest and most exciting saxophone ensembles in the world, bringing together outstanding instrumentalists who have received prizes at competitions all around the world. The five performers come from Belgium, Poland, the United States, Italy and Chile, but they are based in Vienna, where the ensemble performed for the first time – theatre performances and music during the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter. The sound of the ensemble is based on the vivid personality of each musician, including diverse national colours and stage charm that are merged with extensive musical interests, ranging from classical music to the rhythms of Latin American dance, from various kinds of folk music to jazz.
