Saxophonensemble Berlin

Berlin Saxophoneensemble The tradition of saxophone ensembles dates back to Gustav Bumcke. Gustav Bumcke was the pioneer for the saxophone in Berlin. As player, teacher and composer he promoted the instrument and wrote various works for large ensemble in 1920ies. In his tradition Saxophone Ensembles are supported by the Universit√§t der K√ľnste and Musikhochschule Hanns Eisler. Under the direction of Johannes Ernst works by Dieter Schnebel, Witold Szalonek, Rainer Rubbert and many others were premiered. In Zagreb an Octett, formed by present and former students, will perform the Octett of Peter Jona Korn and transcriptions by Berlin based saxophonist and arranger Christoph Enzel.
