Saxcess - New Zealand’s foremost saxophone ensemble

Artists: Debbie Rawson (soprano sax), Reuben Chin (alto sax), Hayden Sinclair (tenor sax), Graham Hanify (baritone sax).

Saxcess made its debut in the Sydney Opera House at a concert staged by the Royal Australian Air Force to commemorate the battle of the Coral Sea.

In 1994 the group travelled to Belgium for a 3 week tour in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the death of the founder of the saxophone, Adolphe Sax.

With a mixture of jazz, classical and cutting edge contemporary, Saxcess performs its multi layered compositions with style and panache and has become in demand for festivals, music societies and concert halls around the country.

In 2012, Saxcess will celebrate its 20th anniversary, and will present a special programme illustrating the story of Adolphe Sax.

The music covers Saxcess’ trade-mark diversity of styles ranging from classical and baroque, to tango, cutting edge contemporary, and jazz. The programme displays a smorgasboard of works covering a fascinating range from Frescobaldi and Handel to Jean Francaix, Ravel, Gershwin and Piazzolla, to exciting works by contemporary composers Barry Cockcroft (Australia), Gareth Farr and Natalie Hunt (New Zealand). The programme also features a world premiere of a celebratory new work by Robbie Ellis (Mozart Fellow 2012).

A kaleidoscope of music illustrating the fascinating story of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the saxophone.

Presented by Chamber Music Wanganui in association with Chamber Music New Zealand.
