Parabolico was formed in 2011 in anticipation of the WSCXVI. Twelve professional saxophonists are united in this unique ensemble, including performers from USA, Scotland, and Germany. All musicians are joined by a unity of tonal concept and artistic vision. The members are all active performers and teachers. Additionally, Parabolico combines several smaller chamber ensembles, such as Klang par2, Trio Bel Canto, and Tetraphonics. This WSCXVI appearance is the ensemble's debut performance.
Lament and Credo - Mark Alan Taggart
Written in 1983 as a response to the death of friend and saxophonist Kenneth Deans, this work explores the myriad emotions one experiences following the death of a loved one -schock, profound sorrow, rage, and ultimately acceptance.
Serenade, op. 22 - v. Finale - Antonín Dvořák (arr. Olaf Mühlenhardt)
Dvorak was happily married and enjoying fatherhood as well as fame and a steady income from commissions when he composed the Serenade, op. 22. It is a charming work with tender melodies and elegant dances throughout. The Finale is a rustic and energetic Bohemian dance with a rousing finish.
