»A sensation for the world of music«: praise from the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung for the young classical saxophonist Asya Fateyeva. With her delight in playing and her many-faceted interpretations, she has become one of the top names in her field. And Fateyeva doesn't see any limits for her instrument: »You can do literally everything with the saxophone!« Time after time, she puts the saxophone back into the limelight.
At her concert in the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, she joins forces with the ensemble reflektor to take a completely new look at Johannes Brahms: in 1986, Italian composer Luciano Berio produced a note-for-note orchestral version of Brahms's first Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, turning the original into a veritable large-scale clarinet concerto. This is now one of the most popular works of its genre, and the arrangement for saxophone has its own special appeal. The programme also features a true milestone of the orchestral repertoire in the shape of Brahms's famous Haydn Variations.
