A good start to the new year with a hot (and still unnamed) new band
After a long pandemic-induced period of playing mostly at home, with a few streaming experiences in between, I'm happy to announce a new project with Sharik Hasan on piano, Malek Lakhoua on drums and Christy Smith on bass. Stay tuned for updates! May 2021 be at least a slight improvement :)
New record out: HRT Jazz Orchestra feat. Tamara Obrovac Transhistrian Ensemble
Recording and performing with Tamara Obrovac, Kruno Levacic, Fausto Beccalossi, Uroš Rakovec, Ziga Golob and the HRT Jazz Orchestra was a great honor and an unadulterated pleasure. I'm excited about the (long overdue) publication of this record! Have a listen here.
New job upcoming
I'm proud to announce that starting next year, I'll be teaching woodwinds at the Australian International School in Singapore. Send your kids there!
Expert Interpreter at YST Conservatory
I am very happy to have been invited once more to YST Conservatory, this time in the role of "expert interpreter": I'll give two lectures about the saxophone in contemporary music, from the basics up to extended techniques and repertoire; I'll work with composition students on their pieces for saxophone, and eventually I'll premiere their pieces as a recital at YST. I'm very much looking forward to it!
