Milko Lazar and Bojan Gorišek and their guests, the Zagreb Saxophone Quartet, will present a brand new programme, including two novelties premiered in Šiška. The programme will intertwine compositions by Milko Lazar and Philip Glass for two pianos and compositions for an unusual sextet of four saxophones and two pianos.

In the first part of the evening, the musicians will premiere this year’s new composition by Milko Lazar “Obscure Dances” for a saxophone quartet and two pianos, and perform Lazar’s reworking of Philip Glass’ “Concerto for Saxophone Quartet” (1995) for a saxophone quartet and two pianos for the first time. In the second part, we will hear the first performance of Glass’ “Four Movements for Two Pianos” (2008) in Slovenia, as well as the premiere of another new composition by Lazar, “Songs from Faust” for two pianos, from the ballet Faust – Das Ballett, premiered to great success in April with choreography by Edward Clug at the Zürich opera to great success.

Pianist and composer Milko Lazar and pianist Bojan Gorišek have work closely together since 1999. As a piano duo, they’ve toured all over Europe and the USA, as well as recorded seven albums of Lazar’s original compositions.

The Zagreb Saxophone Quartet is an internationally acclaimed ensemble of four soloists and is one of the oldest and most prominent saxophone quartets around. It has operated continuously with the same line-up (Dragan Sremec – soprano saxophone, Goran Merčep – alto saxophone, Saša Nestorovič – tenor saxophone, Matjaž Drevenšek – baritone saxophone) since 1989, playing all over the world and recording numerous independent CD albums.
