Chameleon – Duo sonatas for saxophone.

The saxophone was created by instrument maker Adolphe Sax in the 1840s. His aim was to establish a balancing element between the woodwind and brass sections in a wind orchestra. As a result, the saxophone has a chameleon-like versatility that has inspired composers to explore its potential in an astonishing variety of contexts. Saxophone player Kalle Oittinen creates four distinct soundscapes with four other instruments in a balanced programme of contemporary works.
