San Jose Wind Symphony Presents "Czech Mate"
Czech composers have had a major influence on western music and you’ll hear why as the San Jose Wind Symphony www.sjws.org performs spellbinding works by Dvorak, Smetana, Fucik, Weinburger and Nelhybel.
Our guest artists are the ground breaking ensemble MANA Saxophone Quartet performing David DeBoor Canfield’s “Concerto after Dvorak”. Championed as “Saxophone Ambassadors” by Chamber Music Magazine, MANA embodies its namesake as a force advocating for the saxophone in classical music Using vintage instruments built to the acoustical specifications of the saxophone’s inventor, Adolphe Sax, MANA’s impassioned performances offer a vivid reimagining of the saxophone’s nineteenth-century heritage – a refined aesthetic characterized by intrinsic warmth, dynamic range of character, and absolute versatility.
