Winterzauber – Sabine Meyer & Alliage Quintett

Theater Casino Zug Tuesday, 08 Dec 2020

For the past few years, Sabine Meyer and the Alliage Quintet have been exploring new directions and discovering that the saxophone family can easily be extended to include the clarinet.

She herself is rightly seen as one of the foremost virtuosos on her instrument and has a particular penchant for chamber music – ideally when playing alongside highly-reputed international orchestras. Alliage is an absolutely charming alloy (as the French-speakers among you will know) of four saxophones and a piano. While this is a unique formation, the ensemble has already garnered two ECHO Klassik Awards and gives more than the illusion of being a full-sized orchestra, producing a sound experience of the highest quality. Famous masterpieces are tailored to suit the quintet in close cooperation with the composers, combining to treat us to a pre-Christmas evening where their instruments will be absolutely in tune with our souls.
