Ties Mellema is featured soloist in ‘Hot’, in which composer Franco Donatoni expertly draws upon the atmosphere of old jazz. Aurelia Saxophone Quartet plays Jacob TV’s Tipperary Concerto with the Asko | Schönberg, and in the work by Peter van Onna, in which all participating saxophonists join forces, classical and jazz styles meet each other.

Thereafter, Asko | Schönberg, Artvark Saxophone Quartet and VOCAALLAB together will present ‘Stijl’ by Louis Andriessen; inspired by Mondrian’s paintings Composition with red, yellow and blue and Victory Boogie Woogie.
